Space Graphics — Visual Interpretations of phenomenons such as a black hole or the birth of a star, help to form a certain feeling for the cosmos of ESO.
Only in complete darkness the endlessness and calm elegancy of the stars can be seen. Exactly the same applies to the corporate design, only at night its full appearance comes to light.
The world of ESO is silent. No sound waves can travel through space. But radio waves can and nearly every object in the universe emits them. Also the planets in our solar system. Sounds that were never heard before help to shape a vague image of our universe, but also to shape a specific understanding for the world of ESO.
The following video contains the sound of Jupiter, captured by the Galileo spacecraft (NASA).
Plug in your headphones, sit down, listen and experience.
To emphasize the technical aspect of ESO, the sound files were transferred on mp3-modules to provide an adequate setting for a hearing experience.
