If you look back all the way to when Galileo made his first telescope and plot the size of the largest telescope on Earth for those 400 years," said Patrick McCarthy, vice president of the Giant Magellan Telescope Corp.
It will reveal the first objects to emit light in the universe, explore the mysteries of dark energy and dark matter, and identify potentially habitable planets in the Earth' s galactic neighborhood," according to Wendy Freedman, chair of the Giant Magellan Telescope Organization (GMTO) Board of Directors and Professor of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Chicago.
The first of a new generation of "extremely large telescopes," or "ELTs," the Giant Magellan Telescope will have a mirror array consisting of seven 27-foot- (8.
We know almost nothing about the universe in its early stages," said Carnegie Observatories director Wendy Freedman, who chairs the board that is building the Giant Magellan Telescope.

What do these stories tell us about the next generation of giant ground-based telescopes like the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT), the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), and the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), which are now in their initial design or construction phases?
Currently planned large infrared telescopes, the Giant Magellan Telescope, the Thirty Meter Telescope, and the European Extremely Large Telescope, would not be large enough.
The Giant Magellan Telescope is a billion-dollar, international project that aims to design, build and operate a very large, next generation optical/infrared telescope.
That was the day the University of Arizona's Steward Observatory Mirror Laboratory announced it had finished polishing the first mirror of the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT), to be built at Las Campanas, Chile.
Follow-up studies with instruments like the Giant Magellan Telescope and James Webb Space Telescope could tell us whether any warm, transiting planets have an atmosphere and further probe its chemistry.
