Eyes on the Universe - A Journey to the Largest Telescopes on Earth

Augen der Wüste - Eine Reise zu den größten Teleskopen der Erde

The answer to one of the most fundamental questions of mankind - are we alone in the universe? - appears to have come within touching distance. The ESO, the leading research and development organisation in the field of astronomy enables top class astronomic research. At the present time the world's largest telescope is being built in the unique observatory in Chile's Atacama Desert at around 5000 metres above sea level. It is expected to provide the first pictures of planets similar to earth. Scientists from all over the globe have devoted their lives to uncovering cosmic secrets, living and working for years at a time in this inhospitable part of the world. Far from civilisation, the researchers are attempting to solve the puzzle of the universe.
