X-shooter – Niels Bohr Institute - University of Copenhagen


X-shooter is the world's most sensitive instrument of its kind to observe the Universe from Earth.

The new astronomical instrument for European giant telescopes, the VLT in Chile makes it possible to observe phenomena in the universe more than twice as good as the best so far.

Danish researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have developed and built a large portion of the mechanics and electronics for the project.
