Building VISTA, the World’s Largest Survey Telescope. ESO turns fifty this year, and to celebrate this important anniversary, we are showing you glimpses into our history. Once a month during 2012, a special Then and Now comparison Picture of the Week shows how things have changed over the decades at the La Silla and Paranal Observatory sites, the ESO facilities in Santiago de Chile, and the Headquarters in Garching bei München, Germany.
Computing at ESO Through the Ages. This image shows the Austrian astronomer Rudi Albrecht in the Data Centre at ESO Headquarters in Garching bei München, Germany, which archives and distributes data from ESO’s telescopes. He is in front of a rack containing a system with 40 processor cores, 138 terabytes of storage capacity and 83 gigabytes of RAM — over 5 million times more than the machine used by him back in 1974!
