Meetings, Missions and Study Visits

The visit to an astronomical observatory is an unforgettable experience. In first place because it is a science sanctuary, where great scientists can be found, and where the thresholds of knowledge are walked through. The technology involved is impressive and the contrast between the sophistication of the equipment and the ease of its use, is simply fascinating.  Sometimes improvisation must be preformed such as cables fixed with tape at the last minute. Everything must be done in order to do not loose a precious observing session because of some minor hazard. The dedication of the technicians and support astronomers must be mentioned. They work many times in extreme difficult conditions such as air rarefaction, cold and inadequate rest.
