ESOcast: 70: Green Light for E-ELT Construction

The European Extremely Large Telescope, or E-ELT for short, will be by far the largest optical and near-infrared telescope in the world. In early December 2014 the ESO Council gave the go-ahead for the first construction phase of the telescope.

More episodes of the ESOcast are also available.
