In December the council of the European Southern Observatory approved a revised construction plan for ESO's Very Large Telescope. (See the article “The New Ground‐Based Optical Telescopes,” by Buddy Martin, John M. Hill and Roger Angel in PHYSICS TODAY, March 1991, page 27.) Although the four 8.2‐meter telescopes will be constructed as scheduled, the VLT Interferometer, its subarray, the Coudé feed and the associated adaptive optics were postponed to reduce the expenditure in the next few years.
