The Meridian S02E04: The European Southern Observatory & an eathquake on the mountain

Research output: Non-textual formCurated/produced exhibition/event


The European Southern Observatory, or ESO, is celebrating 60 years of scientific achievements in the southern hemisphere. Sweden is one of the founding members of ESO, and several astronomers from Lund have been actively involved over the years.

In the fourth episode of the second season our podcast hosts, Nic Borsato and Rebecca Forsberg, invite professor emeritus Dainis Dravins to the microphone to tell us about both the Swedish and his own connection to the European Southern Observatory.

In this second season of the Meridian we are also bringing you some field reporting from the Nordic Optical Telescope on La Palma, where a team of astronomers are trying to catch an ultra-hot Jupiter-sized exoplanet.
