The official site of ESO says the E-ELT will be operational "early the next decade" (2020s): http://www.eso.org/p.../e-elt_rev.html This source puts the operation date at 2022: http://news.sciencem...-telescope.html Is there anything that I missed? Is this old news? The source given on the timeline is from 2010 apparently.

I think they pushed the date back four years.

Before they actually start construction we shouldn't care much about dates. If they say 2022 before construction began, it may as well be 2032.

Hey, it's space exploration, not an oil rig ;)
