VISTA, the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy, generates tremendous amounts of data doing large-scale surveys of the sky. VISTA was built to observe in a colour of light that the human eye cannot see – infrared. Infrared light can travel through dust clouds, allowing infrared telescopes to pull back the veils on some of the universe’s most interesting objects.
