I found a brilliant timelapse video on the Popular Science site. It shows the Very Large Telescope (VLT) at work in Chile.
Here are some VLT links to explore
- wikipedia entry
- the VLT website
- series of images from the BBC
- the VLT’s laser guide
- ESO’s top 10 discoveries
You can get a pdf summary of the VLT from the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the organisation that runs the VLT, by clicking on the download link below.
