A few weeks ago, I got to travel to a small town south of Munich called Tegernsee, located on the shore of Tegernsee lake close to the Alps. Here is home to the studio used by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) at Perix Media to record both the ESOcast and Hubblecast.

Part of my job as journalist, science communication intern at ESO is to prepare video scripts for these video casts. This recording was for Hubblecast 72 (released 4th March) and for ESOcast 64 (to be released at the start of April).  My colleague, Nikita Marwaha wrote the former and I wrote the latter.

Here are a few photos from behind the scenes:

Hubblecast 72 can now be viewed on YouTube or via spacetelescope.org. Stay tuned for ESOcast 64.
