On June 18th construction crews blew the top off of a Chilean mountain to make room for the world’s biggest telescope. In 2024 when the project is scheduled for completion, the European- Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) which will be the largest telescope in the world, collection 13 times the light of the largest visible light telescope currently in operation. The E-ELT will be able to correct for the atmospheric distortions (i.e., fully adaptive and diffraction-limited) from the start, providing images 16 times sharper than those from the Hubble Space Telescope.

Outside Magazine reported; “We want to study the atmospheres of planets that are just the right distance from their stars that life might form on their surfaces,” says astronomer Joe Liske. “The goal is to try to say whether life might exist on some of these planets.”

 

Watch  construction crews blow off the top of a mountain to make room for some seriously big science.

    ALMA isn’t even finished yet and they’re already starting to build another bigger and better telescope array?

    Is this supposed to be replacing ALMA? Does this mean that ALMA is already obsolete before it’s even finished?

    When the alien invasion finally happens, it will be in Chile, as they will be drawn toward the two beacons of ALMA and now E-ELT…
