Episode 66 of the Hubblecast explores the Ring Nebula (Messier 57). Although this nebula is one of the most famous objects in our skies, more than 200 years after its discovery astronomers are still unveiling some of its secrets. Credit: ESA/Hubble
May 25 2013 is an important anniversary for the Very Large Telescope – it is exactly fifteen years since the first light on the first of its four Unit Telescopes. Since then the four original giant telescopes have been joined by the four small Auxiliary Telescopes that form part of the VLT Interferometer (VLTI). The VLT is one of the most powerful and productive ground-based astronomical facilities in existence. In 2012 more than 600 refereed scientific papers based on data from the VLT and VLTI were published. This ESOcast shows spectacular images from the VLT for every year of its operation.

For our newest ESOcast, we pose this puzzle: how do you move a 100-tonne giant ALMA antenna 30 kilometres up onto the oxygen-starved Chajnantor Plateau, 5000 metres above sea level and finish the job with millimetre precision?

This episode of the Hubblecast celebrates 23 years of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, with the unveiling of a beautiful and striking new Hubble image of the Horsehead Nebula. Our host Dr Joe Liske (aka Dr J) explains the secrets of nebulae, cosmic clouds of gas and dust that have been the subjects of some of Hubble’s most striking astronomical images. The Horsehead Nebula is one of the most distinctive, and is now shown in a whole new light thanks to a stunning new infrared image — revealing the delicate wisps of gas that are normally hidden by the thick dust that makes up the Horsehead’s famous and familiar shape.

The ALMA inauguration ESOcast. Share the excitement of the inauguration ceremony and contemplate the breathtaking images from ALMA itself and views of its unique environment in the Atacama Desert. This event marks the completion of all the major systems of the giant telescope and the formal transition from a construction project to a fully fledged observatory. ALMA is a partnership between Europe, North America and East Asia in cooperation with the Republic of Chile. Credits and download options are available on: http://www.eso.org/public/videos/eso1312b/
Shale gas, a form of unconventional gas found in shale reservoirs, is now presented as being the new solution to our world's growing energy needs. However, despite the fact that more and more big businesses are pushing for the development of shale gas accross the world, its production poses serious threats to the climate, the environment and to local communities. The Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament joined by key European NGOs FOEE, F&W Europe and Heal want to shed light on all the irreversible impacts that could result from the development of this new energy source and call for a immediate ban on fracking and shale gas in Europe... and beyond.

On 13 March 2013 the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) was inaugurated at an official ceremony in the Chilean Andes, marking the completion of all the major systems of the giant telescope and the formal transition from a construction project to a fully fledged observatory. This 16-minute video presents the history of ALMA from the origins of the project several decades ago to the recent first science results. Illustrated by dramatic helicopter footage, the movie takes you on a journey to the 5000-metre-high Chajnantor Plateau, where ALMA stands, in the unique environment of the Atacama Desert of Chile.

Der Aufbau des Pferdetransporters ist aus einem veredelten Schiffsbau-Material ausgeführt, das resistent gegen Salz, Stöße und Kratzer ist. Dieses Material sichert auch eine absolute Korrosionsfestigkeit. Dieser Aufbau ist aus einer einzigartigen Gitter-Paneelkonstruktion Rudvan ausgeführt, deren Grundelement die Wände mit Stärke von 80 mm bis 120 mm, vollisoliert sind. Ausstattung des Pferdeabteils und Einrichtungen für Pferde. 2 – 7 Pferde in diagonaler Stellung. Hydraulische Heckrampe (2.200 mm) und Seitenrampe (1.500 mm) aus dem Innen des Fahrzeugs und ferngesteuert. Die Rampen besitzen einen Kolisionsschutz und eine Positions und Signalanlage. mehr auf rudvan.de
