Star fly-by


Just found an interesting website. Its about a large telescope, 2.7 metre mirror, being flown around in a Jumbo Jet.

Apparently, it will be able to view things in more detail than larger telescopes on the ground can manage.

Though, I have no idea how they keep the telescope still while flying faster than 500 miles an hour…
