MATISSE in the lab

MATISSE (Multi-AperTure mid-Infrared SpectroScopic Experiment) in the lab at the Observatoire de la Côote d’Azur in France, where it underwent a suite of initial tests before being transported to Chile for integration into the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) at ESO’s Paranal Observatory. This instrument will offer unique and fascinating observational capabilities. Its high-resolution observations will contribute to answering several fundamental astrophysical questions and will surely lead to unexpected discoveries.
