Sixty Years of Engagement Between ESO and Chile: Past, Present and Future
On 6 November 1963 ESO and the Republic of Chile started a journey together that enabled the establishment in Chile of all ESO’s observatories and telescopes so far. Despite all the challenges that the world went through over these six decades, a strong partner- ship between ESO and Chile has been forged. A vibrant user community in Chile has grown and matured, and ESO is proud to have accompanied this remarkable evolution. In this article I look at the past and present of the engagement between ESO and Chile and argue in favour of a future joint path.
