COLOSSUS

A 74 m filled aperture interferometric telescope

The Colossus Consortium
is a world leading group of innovative entrepreneurs, scientists and engineers developing technology innovations allowing 50-100m class dedicated optical structures to be built with the resources now being allocated for general-purpose astronomical telescopes of significantly smaller aperture.

Vision:
To develop the concept and enabling technology for the world-largest telescope Colossus capable to detect extrasolar life and extraterrestrial civilizations.

Mission:
To balance the Colossus design against the probability of success with limited resources, time to completion, and the overall cost. To achieve these ingredients of a fundable design in a short time period.
