As @MaxBuzz said in the JWST updates thread:
the forum does not have a topic dedicated to Extremely Large Telescope
So I decided to create a thread discussing the Extremely Large Telescope and it's comparison with other large telescopes.

Pretty dope website. I can just hear the web-designer they hired to make it swearing: "Dammit, I'm spending all this effort to make this look as epic as possible, and it's all undermined by that silly name!"

the title "Very Large Telescope" is already taken
I know that there's a convention to the name, but the convention is kind of unsustainable. I mean, what's going to be the next one? The ludicrously large telescope?
