Readers will discover, among other topics:

  • Research highlights from ESO facilities, including: imaging planets as they form around their host stars; tracing the chemistry of stars and their environments, probing the dynamics in the environments around supermassive black holes; and star formation in a galaxy only 250 million years after the Big Bang.
  • A summary of activities at ESO’s front-line observatories in Chile.
  • The latest news from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and Extremely Large Telescope (ELT).
  • News about ESO staff and infrastructure — including the opening of the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre.
