Extreme Scope

From the IAU assembly in Rio de Janeiro: This model of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) is impressive even in miniature. Many concepts were studied, notably an Overwhelmingly Large telescope (OWL) with a mirror 100 metres in diameter! Final approval is expected next year for first light in 2018.
