Part three of a series of journeys to the big astronomical observatories of this planet.
La Palma, a beautiful and remote island of the Canary Islands is home to one of the worlds biggest and most diverse observatories.
The “Roque de los Muchachos Observatory” contains jointly the telescopes and instruments of about 60 institutions from more than 20 countries.
But beside the modern, scientific research that is being done here, this place also as a rich history of the native population as place to observe the stars. Petroglyphs confirm that there have been astronomical observations thousands of years ago already.
Filmed for the documentary “Star Stuff” by Milad Tangshir (firstname.lastname@example.org). Check out the trailer: youtube.com/watch?v=F7Vp5waD4i8
