Worlds Largest Telescope?

lirkbald Re:Yes, it WOULD be different (29 comments)

Right. I would have made this comment if it hadn't already been here. I'd also like to mention the CHARA project, located at Mount Wilson Observatory. This *is* the equivalent of the VLA, but in the optical domain.

I'm no astronomer, but I saw it when I went up there for a tour, and it looks very cool. Really fascinating that, in spite of it's close proximity to the 'light pollution' of Los Angeles, Mount Wilson is still doing Real Astronomy.
