A Telescope at the Bottom of the World

A Telescope at the Bottom of the World

Alone in a wilderness of snow and ice, 600 miles from the Earth's South Pole, a solitary telescope watches the stars, searching for the origins of the colorful nebulae in which stars are born.

The brilliantly colored, sweeping nebulae featured on magazine covers and posters lining museum exhibits are the birthplaces and cradles of the stars in our galaxy.

Out of the blackness of space and swirling gasses and debris, these nebulae take form, coalescing into columns and structures that remind us of Earthly shapes: here a horsehead, there a dragon.

Great place for a telescope, no light pollution.
