The Original Article was published on 11 June 2014

The News Feature ‘Big players’ (Nature 510, 204–206; 2014) erred in saying that Mario Hamuy was the only university graduate in Chile in 1982 interested in pursuing graduate studies in astronomy. He was one of just a handful of such students. The article also misnamed the organization that runs the Paranal Observatory — it should have read the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory.
