ALMA recalibrated Venus data

folder_openVenus Science News

Due to intense and expected scientific scrutiny, the ALMA Observatory carefully checked the data processing and found a problem with the way they used Jupiter’s moon Calisto for the Venus data calibration. For background, most large international observatories (including the Hubble Space Telescope and the NASA TESS mission) provide calibrated data products for the community to use. Although raw data is also usually made available, we more often than not use the data calibrated by the experts. Today the ALMA Observatory will release the recalibrated data and the phosphine team is now reanalyzing the data to search for the phosphine signal. Stay tuned!
