The recent Chilean earthquake puts all of life’s little stuff into perspective, I suppose.

I’m relieved that my friends out there are unhurt.

I’m also (a little more selfishly) relieved that apparently, none of the ESO instruments have been damaged by the recent earthquake. It wouldn’t help with our plans to try and get time on X-Shooter if it were half-buried in a heap of rubble, after all!

(That said, our plans are probably half-fantasy anyway. It’s ‘only’ over-subscribed by a factor of 10…)
