    The positioning of radio telescopes.

    I have often wondered but have never had a satisfactory answer: Why are the radio telescopes at ALMA spaced in such an apparently haphazard way? I know they can be moved about for wide and narrow-angle results, but in wide field photos of the site, they seem to be randomly situated all over the place! Why is this?
