Description

In Big Astronomy: People, Places, Discoveries, journey to three world-class observatories in Chile’s rugged Andes Mountains and arid Atacama Desert— remote, extreme regions that happen to have the perfect conditions for astronomical research. Along the way, you’ll meet an inspiring cast of astronomers, engineers, technicians, and support staff who keep these mega-machines running.

Big Astronomy is a multifaceted research and outreach project supported by several partners and funded by the National Science Foundation. It also hosts live educational events online and offers a variety of hands-on activities now adapted for remote learning.
