HIRES (artist's impression)

The high-resolution ELT instrument HIRES (HIgh REsolution Spectrograph) will allow astronomers to study astronomical objects that require highly sensitive observations. It will be used to search for signs of life in Earth-like exoplanets, find the first stars born in the Universe, test for possible variations of the fundamental constants of physics, and measure the acceleration of the Universe's expansion.
