Mountain Blasted To Build 'Extremely Large Telescope'

The Christian Science Monitor reports, the top of Chile's Cerro Armazones mountain was blasted to rubble yesterday to clear the way for the European Southern Observatory's Extremely Large Telescope, which will be the world's biggest, with a main mirror nearly 128 feet in diameter. With all that power, the huge telescope will be able to see objects formed at the beginning of the universe, help researchers explore mysteries like dark matter, and give scientists a good look at extrasolar planets that could be capable of sustaining life.
