Welcome to

The website is produced and published by l’Association Hypertelescope LISE to promote scientific projects of the laboratory of stellar interferometry and Exoplanetary created by Professor Antoine Labeyrie.

Its purpose is to inform the public, fans and scientists, members of the association, on the progress of the projects, and particularly of the Ubaye Hypertelescope developed from 2012 in the Valley of La Moutiere, in the Southern Alps, in France. It documents the concept, history, techniques and advances.

In its editorial, the site relays the life of the association, the scientific adventure and team members involved in the operations and discoveries. More generally, it consists of an active standby and relayed the overall scientific news in the field of interferometry with spatial observational science.


The Hypertelescope project was funded until end August 2014 by the Collège de France where Professor Labeyrie held the Chair of Astrophysics observational. At his retirement from the College de France, the Hypertelescope project is now more financed.

The purpose of the association is to continue the performance, maintenance and the scientific exploitation of the Hypertelescope project. The continuation and completion of this project are highly dependent on the release of new modes of financing.

To support us in this project, join the Association Hypertelescope LISE. You can also participate in the construction of the Hypertelescope.
