The latest issue of ESO’s in-house journal “The Messenger” (no. 107,
March 2002, 48 pp) is now available on the web at:

It is full of interesting information about science and technology at
ESO. It begins with a review of the successful installation and first
observations with the first Adaptive Optics facility at the VLT,
NAOS-CONICA, followed by a thorough presentation of the ALMA project.
It features a major article on Chilean astronomy and several others on
individual research projects, e.g. about the Crab Nebula. There is
also information about the VLT Science Verification Policy and related
procedures, and details about the release of scientific data from VLTI
commissioning. Some educational items are presented.
