VLT Future Interferometric Laboratory

View from the UT1 enclosure towards the (partly subterranian) building that will house the Interferometric Laboratory. By combining the light from the large telescopes and/or the smaller, movable 1.8-m telescopes, the VLT will act as a giant interferometer and will be able to deliver astronomical images of unprecedented sharpness.
