10000 papers from ESO data
The 10 000th scientific paper using data from ESO's facilities was recorded in the ESO bibliographic database on 11 September 2013. The lucky paper that crossed the 10K line is "Galaxy Halo Truncation and Giant Arc Surface Brightness Reconstruction in the Cluster MACSJ1206.2-0847" by Eichner et al. (ApJ, 2013, vol. 774, p. 124), which uses observations using the VIMOS instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, among others.
