ESOcast 41: Going South — Special 50th anniversary episode #1

Loading player...

Leading up to ESO's 50th anniversary in October 2012, we are releasing eight special ESOcasts, each a chapter from the movie Europe to the Stars -- ESO's First 50 Years of Exploring the Southern Sky.

This first special episode — entitled “Going South” — describes the birth of ESO, and in particular why astronomers from European countries decided to explore the southern sky by placing an astronomical observatory in Chile.

More episodes of the ESOcast are also available.

Find out how to view and contribute subtitles for the ESOcast in multiple languages, or translate this video on dotSUB.
