WIDE-EYED: ESPRESSO Planet Hunter Ready to Drink in the Universe for Alien Worlds. The ESPRESSO instrument, which is installed on the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in northern Chile, made its first observations last month, project team members announced today (Dec. 6). ESPRESSO is designed to find alien planets via the “radial velocity” […]

ESO's ESPRESSO! Searching for Alien Worlds --"With Unprecedented Precision" (WATCH Video)

ESPRESSO (The Echelle SPectrograph for Rocky Exoplanet and Stable Spectroscopic Observations) has successfully made its first observations. Installed on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile, ESPRESSO will search for exoplanets with unprecedented precision by looking at the minuscule changes...        

First light for ESPRESSO -- the next generation planet hunter

(ESO) The Echelle SPectrograph for Rocky Exoplanet and Stable Spectroscopic Observations (ESPRESSO) has successfully made its first observations. Installed on ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile, ESPRESSO will search for exoplanets with unprecedented precision by looking at the minuscule changes in the light of their host stars.

"Amazing!" --ESO's Very Large Telescope Unveils 72 Previously Unknown Galaxies Hidden in Hubble's Ultra Deep Field (WATCH Video)

“MUSE can do something that Hubble can’t — it splits up the light from every point in the image into its component colors to create a spectrum," said Roland Bacon with the Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon. "This allows...        

MUSE probes uncharted depths of Hubble Ultra Deep Field

Astronomers using the MUSE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile have conducted the deepest spectroscopic survey ever. They focused on the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, measuring distances and properties of 1600 very faint galaxies including 72 galaxies that have never been detected before. Show More Summary

ESO/NASA Video --Alien Interstellar Object "Unlike Anything We've Ever Seen" (WATCH Today's 'Galaxy' Stream)

For the first time ever, astronomers have studied a 400-meter-long "monolith-like" asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object...        

ESO observations show first interstellar asteroid is like nothing seen before

For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was traveling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system.
