The E-ELT

A three-dimensional model of the European Extremely Large Telescope in its enormous enclosure. 

The main mirror will have a diameter of 39 metres, and the height of the whole building will be 100 metres. A comparison with the car in the lower part of the image conveys a feeling of the observatory's impressive size.

The design for the E-ELT shown here was published in 2009 and is preliminary.
