ESO (European Southern Observatory) Celebrates 50th Anniversary on Oct 5, 2012 with a live stream from Paranal


This coming Friday, Oct 5, the Observatory where I have been working since 2001 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the signing of the founding agreement. I am happy to have been a part of this great scientific adventure for more than ten years.

There will be a 6-hour long live stream starting at 11:00 CEST:

In the words of our PR officer: “For the first time in ESO’s history, the VLT will be pointed towards an object in the sky selected by members of the public — the Thor’s Helmet Nebula (NGC 2359). We look forward to sharing this event with you.”

Unfortunately, I will be at La Silla – the other telescope site. In fact, it was the first ESO telescope site in Chile.
