Extremely Large Telescope: Artist’s rendering | ESO
This artist’s rendering shows a night view of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) in operation on Cerro Armazones in northern Chile. The telescope is shown using lasers to create artificial stars high in the atmosphere. The first stone ceremony for the telescope was attended by the President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet Jeria, on May 26, 2017.

This revolutionary new ground-based telescope concept will have a 39-meter main mirror and will be the largest optical/near-infrared telescope in the world: “the world’s biggest eye on the sky"

The ELT will gather 100,000,000 times more light than the human eye, 8,000,000 times more than Galileo's telescope, and 26 times more than a single Very large Telescope (VLT). In fact, the ELT will gather more light than all of the existing 8–10-meter class telescopes on the planet, combined.

Since 2005, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) has been working with its community and industry to develop an extremely large optical/infrared telescopes.

The ELT program was approved in 2012 and green light for construction at Cerro Armazones in Chile's Atacama Desert was given at the end of 2014. The ELT is expected to see first light in 2024, and the instruments in 2025.

Everyone else has headphones, but not Trump. Surely it's not because he's fluent in Italian. Surely not. Too lazy even to listen? Why is he even there? Just a waste of space.
