ESA will site its Test-Bed Telescope at La Silla

Under a cooperation agreement between ESO and ESA, a Test-Bed Telescope similar to the one shown here will be sited at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. Taking advantage of the world-class observing conditions there, the telescope will pave the way for an autonomous optical sensor network which will detect and track an extensive list of near-Earth objects, such as asteroids.
