World's largest ground based telescope in works!!

The images from the Hubble Space Telescope have been released and some of them can be viewed on the internet now. If there is one word to describe the jaw dropping space phenomenon captured by this telescope then it simply has to be ‘amazing’. Pillars of Creation” and the “Horsehead nebula” are just few of the startling images which are the product of this amazing telescope.

Truth be told, no matter how amazing the Hubble might be, it will still face intensive competition. Right now, Hubble should be looking out for itself because a new ground based telescope is on its way and is currently under development procedures. As the name suggests, the European Extremely Large Telescope is a gigantic telescope which is here to give a tough time. The telescope is going to be prepared by the European Southern Observatory and the site of this huge equipment is going to be a mountain top in Chile. They are only waiting for parliament of Brazil to ratify the OSE’s charter.

The deserted mountain top is going to be a perfect spot for the telescope since it would be measuring 39 meters (127.95 feet) in diameter and this measurement makes it the largest telescope. One of the OSE astronomers has claimed that the telescope is also going to probe for extra-solar planets which have similar masses like that of the Earth’s and it will also carry out some direct imaging of planets which are large in size.
