The worlds most powerful telescope is to be built in Spain, after the consortium behind the Thirty Metre Telescope formally announced plans to abandon construction in Hawaii.

The new site of the telescope will be on the Roque de los Muchachos on the Canarian island of La Palma.

Native Hawaiians opposed the construction due to its planned location being on a sacred mountain. However there is also local concerns from the Ecologists in Action group, who have questioned the impact the telescope will have on the islands infrastructure.
