ESO's desert home

Chile's Atacama desert is an inhospitable place, normally populated only by fields of rocks. The occasional dirt road is the only indication in this aerial view that humans have business here. And it's big business. ESO's telescopes are all located in this dry wilderness, which actually provides astronomers with some of the best observing sites on the globe.
