Scientists have caught the best ever 3D glimpse of the universe with the help of the MUSE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope.
ESO's Very Large Telescope has captured a spectacular new image of the cometary globule CG4, which glows in fiery reds and oranges in the photo. This faint object is actually a nebula, and was first spotted in 1976.
A new image from ESO seems to be missing a few stars.
The ESO Cosmic Gems program is coming out with some spectacular images. And it's not all that surprising that Messier 47 is the target of one of these images. This open cluster sports bright, hot blue stars that shine against the backdrop of space.
Scientists have used ESO and other telescopes in order to better understand the formation of one particular cluster: the Spiderweb Galaxy and its surroundings.
ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile has captured a spectacular new image of a beautiful star cluster called NGC 3293. The new picture reveals a bit more about the lives and deaths of sibling stars in the constellation of Carina.
Astronomers have captured a stunning new image of the star formation region Gum 15 with the help of the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile.
A new instrument at the Paranal Observatory in Chile produces detailed, colour-spectrum images of celestial objects.
The final antenna for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) project has just been handed over to the ALMA Observatory. The 12-metre-diameter dish was manufactured by the European AEM Consortium and also marks the successful delivery of a total of 25 European antennas -- the largest...
The 12-metre diameter telescope APEX located high in the Atacama Desert has received a new instrument called ArTeMiS. The Atacama Pathfinder Experiment operates at millimetre and submillimetre wavelengths.
The 3D production Hidden Universe, showing state-of-the-art telescopes in high-resolution time-lapse, mesmerising 3D versions of celestial structures, and a 3D simulation of the evolution of the Universe has been released in IMAX® theatres and giant-screen cinemas around the globe, with world premi...
ESO's Very Large Telescope has been working for 15 years--and now it's celebrating its birthday with a newly released image. The instrument has captured a spectacular stellar nursery that reveals thick clumps of dust silhouetted against the pink glowing gas cloud known to astronomers as IC 2944.
