Chile telescope unveils depths of universe

Observatory in Atacama to be able to match views from space based telescopes such as the Hubble.

    Gazing into the furthest reaches of the universe could become a whole lot easier, thanks to a new telescope invented in Chile, which has been been referred to by experts as the astronomy capital of the world.

    Located at an observatory in the Atacama Desert, it is the first earth-based telescope that is able to match views from space-based telescopes such as the Hubble.
