All of the VLT telescopes are now modelled in LEGO®

Frans Snik’s LEGO® model of ESO’s Paranal platform reproduces each of the 8-metre Unit Telescopes in remarkable detail. It also includes the smaller Auxiliary Telescopes that can combine with the Unit Telescopes to form the VLT Interferometer. A laser underneath the model platform even mimics the optical system of the interferometer.
