Description: A 17-story Millimetre Radio telescope being assembled atop of the 15,000-foot La Negra dormant volcano.
It will probe the origins of the universe with an antenna dish the size of a baseball infield.
The Large Millimetre Telescope is a bi-national project sponsored by both U.S. and Mexican governments and institutions to build the largest single-dish millimetre-wavelength radio telescope on top of the mountain Cerro La Negra near Puebla in Mexico.
On Saturday November 19 2005, the antenna reflector was successfully lifted into position.
