Within a decade, 70% of the ground based astronomical infrastructure of the world will be on Chilean soil. These major observing facilities include the 4 meter telescopes of CTIO and La Silla, the four 8 meter mirrors of the VLT, the 66 dishes of ALMA, and the upcoming 30 meter EELT. Join us for an overview of the telescopes and the astronomy being done on Chilean soil and an introduction to the long skinny country with the best skies on the planet.
