        The Federal Minister for Science and Research of Austria, Karlheinz Töchterle, and the Minister for Science and Education of Portugal, Nuno Crato, visited ESO's Paranal Observatory on 15 March 2013, as part of their official visits to Chile. The ministers and their delegations were hosted by ESO's Director General, Tim de Zeeuw. Ministers Töchterle and Crato visited the summit of Cerro Paranal where the telescopes are located, at an altitude of 2635 metres. This provided great views of the desert area, the observatory, nearby Cerro Armazones and the Pacific Ocean. The ministers watched the opening of the telescopes before the start of the night's observations and enjoyed a spectacular view of the sunset from the platform. Later in the evening both ministers visited the control room and interacted with the astronomers observing with the Very Large Telescope.

                This video clip shows the distinguished guests, including the President of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, arriving at the ALMA Operations Support Facility (OSF), located at an altitude of 2900 metres in the Atacama Desert in Chile for the inauguration of the giant telescope. The guests are shown with one of the giant ALMA transporters as well as other components. The inauguration took place at an official ceremony in the Chilean Andes, and marked the completion of all the major systems of the giant telescope and the formal transition from a construction project to a fully fledged observatory.

                    • Gravitational lensing of distant star-forming galaxies (schematic)


                      from ESO Observatory Added 70 2 0

                      This schematic image represents how light from a distant galaxy is distorted by the gravitational effects of a nearer foreground galaxy, which acts like a lens and makes the distant source appear distorted, but brighter, forming characteristic rings of light, known as Einstein rings. An analysis of the distortion has revealed that some of the distant star-forming galaxies are as bright as 40 trillion Suns, and have been magnified by the gravitational lens by up to 22 times.
