Road to the Milky Way

It appears almost as if this road at the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) construction site joins the Milky Way as it stretches up into the sky, a fitting metaphor for the location of the "world's biggest eye on the sky". The ELT will tackle some of the biggest scientific challenges of our time and hopefully deliver on a number of firsts as well.
