Building the world’s largest telescope

Astronomy & Space

In 2014, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) began construction of the world's largest telescope, the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), at an altitude of over 3,000 m in Chile's Atacama Desert. Scheduled to enter service in 2028, this giant telescope promises to mark a new era in ground-based astronomy. A Canadian team will be involved in the design and manufacture of the ANDES spectrograph, which will search for signs of life outside the solar system.
