Talk about no imagination.  The name of this telescope is the “Extremely Large Telescope“.  It’s like some reasearchers came up with a design, some really rich people funded the project and then they said “Let’s have Kyle come up with a name”.  Haha… I kid, I kid.  That one was a cheap laugh for D-Rey.

Seriously though, you’d think they’d call it the Leviathan Lens, or the Goliath Telescope or the Behemoth Refractor.  Still, if they’re shying away from fanciful names how about the BFT?  Now there’s a name I could get behind.

  1. I think the “Extremely” part is very creative. Nothing is more clever than an adverb.
