Saw this interesting news story when I opened the paper today. Had to hunt it down on the net when I got home. Looks like the Keck interferometer is paying off already. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

(addendum: I was wrong about the interferometer part. They only used adaptive optics. Sorry. http://www.onlineschoolyard.com/channel/article.asp?lArticleID=7627&lChannelID=350)
