The Large Millimetre Telescope on the summit of Sierra Negra, an extinct volcano in Mexico. 

A next-generation millimetre-wavelength camera – the most sensitive on Earth – will be added to the telescope by a team from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Mexico’s Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica, Óptica y Electrónica.

It is expected to be operational by late 2018.
