Making Way for Construction of the ESO Supernova

This video captures the end of an era as the temporary office buildings at the ESO Headquarters in Garching, Germany were dismantled.

The removal of these buildings, which previously housed ESO staff who now have offices in the new Headquarters extension, makes space for construction of the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre.

The ESO Supernova is scheduled to open in spring 2018 and will offer its visitors a modern, interactive astronomical exhibition and one of the most advanced planetariums in the world.
