Caption: European Extra Large Telescope (E-ELT). Artwork of the E-ELT against an image of the Milky Way, distant stars and extrasolar planets. The E-ELT will comprise a 42 metre diameter primary mirror, making it the biggest single mirror telescope in the world. It will observe in the visible and near infrared wavelengths and will be sensitive enough to detect small extrasolar planets. It will be sited in either Chile or the Canary Islands and is scheduled to be completed around 2015.
