Abstract / Description:Over the last decade, the [C II] 158 µm line has emerged as one of the most powerful probes of the interstellar medium at high redshift. It is one of the brightest far-infrared lines, opening up the possibility to spatially and spectrally resolve the emission in high-redshift galaxies. ALMA has already demonstrated this during Cycle 0. Our ALMA [C II] kinematical study of the galaxy ALESS73.1 at z = 4.8, observed 1.2 Gyr after the Big Bang, shows evidence for turbulent, rotating emission in a galaxy that is still forming most of its stars.
