    A few days ago I was watching an astronomy programme, in the Horizon series, on BBC4 (UK).
    Part of this programme dealt with telescopes based in Northern Chile.
    I was, again, struck by the austere beauty of the Atacama desert.
    As has been noted before it could be a scene from the Martian landscape.
