Reaching New Heights in Astronomy

New ESO brochure published

19 December 2013

A new ESO brochure, entitled Reaching New Heights in Astronomy, has been published and is available as a PDF for download (in 12 languages initially, including English). Printed copies can be ordered from the ESO shop, or collected directly from ESO Headquarters.

This 28-page publication describes the ESO sites in Chile and ESO’s state-of-the-art technology. It also highlights some of ESO’s biggest discoveries over more than half a century of pushing the boundaries of astronomical science.

Accompanying the text are full colour photos depicting the ESO sites against the backdrop of the beautiful Atacama Desert, along with many spectacular images of astronomical discoveries. This new brochure is a complete update of the older Universe of Discoveries brochure.

Bulk discounts are available in the ESO shop.
