Flattening the Cerro Armazones

On Thursday 19 June 2014 the construction work for the ELT started with a first blast of the mountain top of Cerro Armazones. Since then numerous construction workers using heavy machinery are working in the Atacama Desert to flatten the top of the mountain for a platform large enough to host the ELT with its main mirror of 39.2-metres in diameter.
