The astronomers used HST to capture the light from stars which tells us the "current" (as of when the light was emitted, 11 billion years ago) shape of the galaxies, while ALMA observed submillimeter waves from cold clouds of gas and dust, where new stars are being formed.
Submillimeter waves are a unique diagnostic tool for the dense innermost region of the outflow, and at that exact place we detected the rotation.

For the overlap region, people who work in the field use he terms millimeter waves and submillimeter waves for wavelengths greater than or less than 1 millimeter.
Daniel Marrone and three colleagues measured the polarization of submillimeter waves from its vicinity, and they set new limits on how much--or rather how little--mass it is accreting: a pathetic 2 x [10.sup.-9] to 2 x [10.sup.-7] solar mass (0.0007 to 0.07 Earth mass) per year.
Soon we had the first-ever submillimeter pictures of both Kepler's remnant and Cas A (shown above) and discovered that both remnants are bright sources of submillimeter waves.
