    This video starts with a wide-field view of the sky and zooms in on the bright northern constellation of Taurus (The Bull). The two very bright star clusters of the Pleiades and the Hyades are very prominent and the zoom ends with a close-up look at an apparently unremarkable star called V471 Tauri. This object has been imaged using the new SPHERE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope and this new improved view shows that there is no brown dwarf close to the double star, as had been expected.

    • Zooming in on star-forming galaxies in the early Universe seen with ALMA

      This video sequence starts with a broad view of the sky, including the famous constellation of Orion (The Hunter). We gradually close in on an unremarkable patch of sky called the Chandra Deep Field South that has been studied by many telescopes on the ground and in space. A team of astronomers has used ALMA (the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) to pinpoint the locations of over 100 of the most fertile star-forming galaxies in the early Universe in this part of the sky. The best map so far of these distant dusty galaxies was made using the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX), but the observations were not sharp enough to unambiguously identify these galaxies in images at other wavelengths. ALMA needed just two minutes per galaxy to pinpoint each one within a comparatively tiny region 200 times smaller than the broad APEX blobs, and with three times the sensitivity. At the end of this sequence the fuzzy APEX detections of the galaxies appear first, followed by the much sharper ALMA images that pin down the emitting galaxies much more precisely. The ALMA and APEX observations, at submillimetre wavelengths, are overlaid on an infrared view of the region as seen by the IRAC camera on the Spitzer Space Telescope (coloured blue).

        La lucha contra el abandono escolar entre los alumnos gitanos empieza a dar frutos: Siete de cada diez terminan la ESO. Gracias al Programa “Promociona” de la Fundación Secretariado Gitano, los alumnos a los que acompaña y apoya consiguen titular en Educación Secundaria en el 77 por ciento de los casos, frente al 33 por ciento de abandono de las aulas que se da en este colectivo. La Fundación Secretariado Gitano ha presentado su campaña de sensibilización “Asómate a tus sueños” en el Concierto por la Educación organizado junto a la Fundación Montemadrid y Bankia en el Ateneo de Madrid a finales de noviembre. Asistieron más de 200 personas entre las que se contaban 70 estudiantes de ESO de Madrid. Esta es la tercera campaña de sensibilización en educación de la FSG. Parte de una realidad: a día de hoy, la totalidad de las niñas y niños gitanos están escolarizados ya desde la educación infantil, pero sólo unos pocos terminan. A pesar de los avances de los últimos 30 años entre la comunidad gitana, el 64 por ciento de sus alumnos entre los 16 y los 24 años no terminan la Educación Secundaria Obligatoria. Una tendencia que ha cambiado gracias al acompañamiento del programa “Promociona” en el que se trabaja con las familias, los alumnos y los centros escolares. Se basa en la figura del orientador educativo, las aulas de refuerzo y el proyecto “Mentoring” que permite a los alumnos gitanos acercarse por unas horas a la profesión a la que quieren dedicarse. En el documental “Asómate a tus sueños”, la Fundación Secretariado Gitano en Madrid ha recogido la experiencia vivida por cuatro de estos alumnos pasando un día en la Comisaría de la Policía Nacional en Entrevías, en una Oficina bancaria de Bankia y en el Centro de Psicología Apraxia. El objetivo es motivarles, que vean a donde les lleva estudiar para que terminen la Eso y sigan formándose. Es un paso más en la lucha de la Fundación Secretariado Gitano contra el abandono prematuro de las aulas de los estudiantes gitanos y por reivindicar que hay que garantizar su derecho a la educación.

                This video sequence starts with a view of the rich central parts of the Milky Way and then closes in on a spectacular region of star formation known as the Prawn Nebula (IC 4628) in the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion). The final close up view is a very sharp image taken using the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.

                    This zoom video starts with a wide view of the Milky Way and ends with a close-up look at a pair of mysterious glowing gas clouds in the nearby Large Magellanic Cloud — NGC 2014, and NGC 2020, both in the southern constellation of Dorado (The Swordfish). The final view of these clouds was captured by ESO's Very Large Telescope at the Paranal Observatory in Chile.

                      This video sequence is based on an artist’s impression of exocomets orbiting the star Beta Pictoris. Astronomers analysing observations of nearly 500 individual comets made with the HARPS instrument at ESO’s La Silla Observatory have discovered two families of exocomets around this nearby young star. The first consists of old exocomets that have made multiple passages near the star. The second family, shown in this illustration, consists of younger exocomets on the same orbit, which probably came from the recent breakup of one or more larger objects.
