E-ELT in Search of Black Holes

Deutsche Welle (Nov. 26, 2012) — The E-ELT, or European Extremely Large Telescope, is set to be the world's most powerful telescope ever. It's a project of the European Southern Observatory. It's not due to go into operation for about another decade, but the sense of anticipation is already growing. We take a look at how "the worlds biggest eye on the sky" is coming along. One area that the E-ELT will be focusing on is the mystery of black holes. It will investigate for the first time the closer vicinity around the super-massive black hole at the center of our galaxy. We ask what scientists are hoping to discover and how fundamental their discoveries could be.
