The Keck twin telescopes have been linked. Together they are called the Keck Interferometer, the world’s most powerful optical telescope system. They will eventually search for planets around nearby stars and help NASA design future space-based missions that can search for habitable, Earthlike planets. See press release from March 14 for more details.
