Giant Magellan Telescope snags $17.5 million grant to test advanced optics

It will have " 10 times the resolving power of NASA's famous Hubble Space Telescope..." Stunning!

The GMT, per my math, will have 104x the light gathering ability over the HST with that 24.5m mirror configuration. That will allow for very fast imaging, which can often improve resolution.
