Next-Gen Megascope for Astronomy Taking Shape on Chilean Mountaintop

The GMT will integrate seven primary mirrors to form a light-collecting surface 80 feet (24.5 m) wide, giving the scope a resolving power 10 times greater than that of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. (The scope will also employ seven smaller secondary mirrors, which will bounce light from the primaries down to a camera system.)
