Flying into the ELT (clip, no sound)

This artist's video takes the viewer into the dome of ESO's Extremely Large Telescope on Cerro Armazones in northern Chile. It reveals the complex and massive telescope structure and the 39-metre segmented main mirror. The final moments show night falling and the telescope starting work by switching on multiple lasers to create artificial stars high in the atmosphere. The design of the dome and telescope structured is done by the ESO Contractor ACe.
