Cover image description: This artist's impression displays the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) in all its grandeur. Sitting atop Cerro Armazones, 3046 m up in the Chilean Atacama Desert, the ELT’s mirror will be 39 metres in diameter: “the world’s biggest eye on the sky.” Lasers shine high into Earth’s atmosphere, creating artificial stars. This is essential for the adaptive optics system which will correct for atmospheric turbulence, ensuring remarkably sharp images.Herkunftsnachweis:
