 ESOcast 104: Data2Dome: From the Universe to You | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 238

ESO has teamed up with Evans & Sutherland and the International Planetarium Society and others from the community to make a standard. We call it Data2Dome, in order to get the latest information into the domes.

 ESOcast 103 Light: New ALMA accommodation unveiled (4K UHD) | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 78

The stunning new ALMA Residencia building has just been handed over.

 ESOcast 102 Light: Dramatic Stellar Fireworks (4K UHD) | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 70

Stellar explosions are most often associated with supernovae, the spectacular deaths of stars. But new ALMA observations of the Orion Nebula complex provide insights into explosions at the other end of the stellar life cycle, star birth. This ESOcast Light takes a quick look at the important facts.

 ESOcast 101 Light: Stars found in black hole blasts (4K UHD) | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 73

New observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope have revealed stars forming in the huge outflows in galaxies, which are driven by central supermassive black holes. This ESOcast Light takes a quick look at the important facts.

 ESOcast 100 Light: Dark Matter Less Influential in Early Universe (4K UHD) | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 67

New observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope have revealed that the outer parts of massive disc galaxies 10 billion years ago were rotating less quickly than the spiral galaxies, like the Milky Way, that we see today. This ESOcast Light summarises the important points of this discovery and the significance of dark matter, and how it is distributed.

 ESOcast 99 Light: ALMA Sheds Light on the First Stars (4K UHD) | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 73

ALMA observations have revealed that a very distant galaxy, seen when the Universe was just 4% of its current age, was rich in cosmic dust. This ESOcast Light quickly looks at what this means and why it is important.

 ESOcast 98 Light: A Galaxy On Edge (4K UHD) | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 82

A new image from ESO’s Very Large Telescope gives a very detailed view of the edge-on galaxy NGC 1055. This ESOcast Light takes a quick look at this image and explains what it shows.

This ESOcast Light presents five amazing facts about the 7 Earth-sized planets found in the nearby TRAPPIST-1 system, from their rocky composition to their potential to harbour water.

 ESOcast 96: Ultracool Dwarf and the Seven Planets | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 229

Astronomers have found a system of seven Earth-sized planets just 40 light-years away. Using ground and space telescopes, including ESO’s Very Large Telescope, the planets were all detected as they passed in front of their parent star, the ultracool dwarf star known as TRAPPIST-1.

 ESOcast 95 Light: How Big is a Star? (4K UHD) | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 128

It’s hard to comprehend the sheer size of objects in space , but let’s give it a try!
