Fight continues over giant Hawaiian telescope plan

Opponents of plans to build a giant telescope on a dormant volcano in Hawaii say they will keep fighting despite the project being given a green light.

The State Land Board recently granted a permit to the US$1.4 billion multinational project to build a 30 metre telescope on Hawaii's Mauna Kea.

But this decision is bound to be appealed in the Supreme Court, as Jenny Meyer reports.
