World’s Largest Telescope


The world’s largest telescope is slated for completion by 2020 and will be placed on the Cerro Armazones mountain in Chile.  Its 40 metre-wide mirror made up of almost 800 hexagonal segments definitely warrants it the title of the world’s largest optical telescope.  The 10 billion instrument will be built by The European Southern Observatory and will be capable of directly imaging large exoplanets.
