Caption: Francesco Paresce. Portrait of the astronomer Dr Francesco Paresce, seen in front of an artwork of a star system. Dr Paresce is studying the star system Beta-Pictoris as, like our Solar System, it possesses a disc of dust and debris known as a Kuiper belt. This belt is regarded as a relic of a failed solar system. Dr Paresce works for the European Space Agency and the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, USA. He is also involved with the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) project. The VLT in Chile will be the largest optical telescope in the world when it is completed. Photographed in 1997.
