"Linked as a single giant telescope, they pick up wavelengths of light longer than anything visible to the human eye, and combine the signals in a process called interferometry, which gives ALMA a diameter of 9.9 miles."

This is just plain wrong. Radio telescopes detect radio signals, not light. Just more proof that the AP and their "journalists" are way out of their depth and don't do any research.
