Looking at the VLT shooting lasers (fulldome)

This fulldome video shows the operation of ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT). The VLT uses technology named adaptive optics and creates an artificial star in the atmosphere, 90 kilometres above ground level, by employing strong laser beams. The video is recorded from the dome interior.

This video is an excerpt from ESO's fulldome movie Europe to the Stars.
