ESOcast 116: OPC 100

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

To astronomers, ESO’s state-of-the-art telescopes are not just about collecting pretty pictures, however alluring they may be; they are tools to collect data, through which remarkable discoveries are made. But there is simply not enough observing time available for everyone to observe to their heart’s content — so how is telescope time allocated?

ESOcast 116 explores how astronomers request time to use an #eso telescope, and how ESO’s Observing Programmes Committee, embarking on its one-hundredth meeting, examines and judges these proposals in order to ensure that #eso is making the best use of its telescopes to advance our knowledge and understanding of the Universe.
