The Colossus

~75 metre telescope. Looks like it could be pretty amazing if it gets built.

- Detecting biosignatures on habitable planets within 50 LY
- Observing the Apollo landers
- Observing Geostationary satellites with mm resolution
- Resolving surface features on stars

Detecting extraterrestrial civilisations
