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.

Part two of a series of journeys to the big astronomical observatories of this planet. In this video: The Paranal Observatory and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array – ALMA. With some of the biggest ground-based telescopes on earth, the observatories of the European Southern Observatory in Chile are at the bleeding edge of astronomical research. These incredibly complex machines, operating synchronized and precisely in the very remote and hostile environments of the Atacama Desert and Andes, enable deep views into the universe.

All the sequences were shot in only 4 nights in total, but on two trips in 2017 and 2019.
