  • Mihkel Kama is a scientist in Leiden Observatory in The Netherlands. He is one of the few Estonian astronomers, if not the only one, to have done research using the world-class ALMA telescope in Chile. The demand for this telescope is so high that only 20% of scientists' requests are fulfilled. Although Mihkel's next job will probably not be in Estonia, he has said that he wants to keep in touch with Estonia and help further the development of local astronomy and cosmology.
