Zeeko was chosen by the European Southern Observatory in November 2007 to supply sample polished mirror segments for the 42 meter telescope (known as The Extremely Large Telescope - ELT).
The ESO telescope which is likely to be based in the Andes will collect images of galaxies which formed soon after the Big Bang, between 12 and 14 billion years ago.
Zeeko will be building a special 2 meter Precise Polishing Zeeko Machine in Coalville to polish the segments for the telescope.
