Caption

Astronomy at Concordia base. Astronomer working with the first telescope constructed at Concordia Station, a research station in Antarctica. The base buildings are in the background at upper right. The base was completed in 2005. It is over 1000 kilometres inland, high on the Antarctic plateau at an altitude of 3233 metres, at the location called Dome C. It is a permanent, all- year research station, the third to be built in Antarctica, and is jointly operated and run by France and Italy. The unpolluted and clear skies provide good viewing conditions for astronomers. The location is also used for meteorological and glaciological research.
