A window to the Universe

"A Window to the Universe" is the title of the new ESO Astronomy Exhibition at the Museum of the Atacama Desert (MDA), in Antofagasta (Chile’s Region II). The MDA, officially inaugurated on 25 May 2010, includes five main permanent exhibitions and contains unique collections. It presents the whole history of the Atacama Desert, from its geological formation up to the present day, in which it has become an important site for ground-based astronomy. In the picture, impressive backlit panels give the feeling of plunging into space. “A Window to the Universe” was designed and donated by ESO as a contribution to the Region of Antofagasta.
