An Astronomer's Hideout

Perfectly integrated into the Mars-like landscape of Paranal in order to affect the astronomical observations as little as possible, it is no surprise that the Residencia (reflected in the background) was chosen as the perfect Bond villain’s hide-out.

In the foreground, a type of native Chilean plant known as cistanthe celosioides.
