Abstract:
Celebrating the double jubilee of ten years in operation of FORS1 and FORS2, this article summarises, from an insider’s point of view, the history of the FORS instruments, arguably the most prolific on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. The FORS story began in the early 1990s and FORS1 was the first VLT user instrument to be commissioned. Both FORS instruments have undergone considerable evolution and quickly parted from the original concept of being identical twins. They have both made major contributions to scientific research and have helped shape VLT operations. In 2009, FORS1 was retired, but FORS2 continues, fusing the best of both.

Abstract:
In February 2010, a new 14 × 14 lenslet array was installed in the NAOS–CONICA (NACO) visible wavefront sensor. Compared to the previously available array, this new array has a shorter focal length and hence a field of view that is large enough for the extended laser guide star (LGS) spot. This successful upgrade results in improved adaptive optics correction delivered by NACO with the LGS.

Abstract:
The High Order Test bench (HOT) is an adaptive optics facility developed at ESO to test high contrast imaging instrument technologies and concepts. HOT reproduces realistically in the laboratory the conditions encountered at a telescope, including turbulence, high order adaptive optics correction and coronagraphy. Experiments carried out with HOT will be discussed mainly in the context of the SPHERE instrument.

Abstract:
We present the first results obtained from our ongoing search for planets around very low-mass stars and brown dwarfs using radial velocities measured with the CRIRES spectrograph on the VLT. High-precision radial velocity measurements for a large sample of these previously neglected stars are enabled by observing at near-infrared wavelengths and using a new type of gas cell that we have developed. Unprecedented long-term near-infrared radial velocity precisions of ~ 5 ms–1 have been demonstrated using CRIRES with the cell. As a first scientific result, data obtained for the very low-mass star VB 10 have been used to refute a claimed planet detection based on astrometry. These results demonstrate the unique sensitivity of our methodology, and confirm its power to detect planets, including potentially habitable ones, around the most numerous stars in the Galaxy.

Spectropolarimetry of Wolf–Rayet Stars in the Magellanic Clouds: Constraining the Progenitors of Gamma-ray Bursts

Abstract:
Wolf–Rayet stars have been identified as objects in their final phase of massive star evolution. It has been suggested that Wolf–Rayet stars are the progenitors of long-duration gamma-ray bursts in low-metallicity environments. However, this deduction has yet to be proven. Here we report on our initial results from a VLT/FORS linear spectropolarimetry survey of Wolf–Rayet stars in the Magellanic Clouds, which is intended to constrain the physical criteria — such as weaker stellar winds, rapid rotation, and associated asymmetry — of the collapsar model. Finally, we provide an outlook for polarisation studies with an extremely large telescope.

Abstract:
The Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) was the first public multi-wavelength survey with an extensive coordination between space- and ground-based observations. ESO–GOODS, a public Large Programme carried out with ESO facilities, has provided essential complementary data to this project that have allowed the full scientific exploitation of a very rich multi-observatory dataset in the Chandra Deep Field South. The public release of all advanced data products from ESO–GOODS, completed in December 2009, is summarised here.

Abstract:
ESA and ESO jointly organised a workshop to explore the synergies between the JWST and ground-based, extremely large telescopes (ELTs). The main goal of the workshop was to bring the JWST and ELT (GMT, TMT, E-ELT) communities together, to identify the common science cases, and to outline instrumentation/upgrade priorities for the ELTs that would maximise the scientific return in key areas of scientific research requiring both facilities, namely: The End of the Dark Ages — First Light and Re-ionisation; The Assembly of Galaxies; The Birth of Stars and Protoplanetary Systems; and Planetary Systems and the Origins of Life. A lively meeting with intense discussions brought some interesting insights.
