Hi! I’m Henrietta Swope, an American astronomer who specializes in variable stars. On behalf of the Carnegie Institution for Science, I would like to welcome you to the Las Campanas Observatory (LCO). We are a science center dedicated to research in astrophysics, located in the middle of a magical landscape where nature, science, and people live in harmony. Right now we are in the cafeteria, the gathering space where the observation nights start and end. Shall we begin our visit?
