The ESO Supernova Vision.



To achieve the vision, the ES will:

  • Engage our visitors as participants.
  • Design unforgettable, curriculum-based learning experiences.
  • Use Big Data in astronomy to bring front-line science to people through innovative and authentic science visualizations.
  • Bring ESO’s front-line observing facilities in the southern hemisphere closer to Europeans.
  • Create connections locally and globally: People ↔ Science; Culture ↔ Astronomy, Local ↔ Global, North ↔ South, Mankind ↔ the Universe.

Our mission is guided by the following values:

  1. Inspiration — We want people to feel inspired by science.
  2. Engagement — We want people to engage with science.
  3. Authenticity — We are close to the science, and present science and the scientific work process accurately.
