Okay Then, Size DOES Matter!

Here's a very nice graphic doing a comparison of light-gathering surfaces on the current big telescopes and the upcoming ones(courtesy of vox.com).  Trying to convince Bob over at Alienlives.com to let me write an article on the collision of local politics and the professional astronomy community over the locations of the new generation of ground-based telescopes.  A fascinating story.  If you think it might be, too, ping c2@alienlives.com.
