I think it is not discussed here.
The Gaint Mangellan Telescope (GMT) - the first telescope of the next-generation of extremely large ground-based telescopes (ELT).
GMT can open a window to fundamental discoveries about the birth of stars and planetary systems, the mysteries of black holes and the genesis of galaxies

The GMT will be the world's largest observatory, with a primary mirror 83 feet (25.4m) across - 4.5 times the collecting power of any telescope on Earth.

I will send detailed information about GMT if needed, asked or possible after your feedback.

It is discussed here, just not real recently:

I'd suggest continuing any discussion on the first thread listed.
