Telescopes have taught us a lot about the universe around us. As we collect more data from other stars and satellites, we might figure out the mysteries of Dark Matter and the probability of other lifeforms existing. Here are just a few cool telescope projects out there.
- SETI's Allen Telescope Array is going to be turned back on, thanks to donations from viewers like you. The SETIStars program raised over $200,000 and exceeded its funding goal. (But next year, they'll have to interrupt their broadcasts with another pledge drive...) [url]
- Nanosatellites could help look for Earth-like planets in other star systems. Pretty soon, there'll be femtosatellites, too. [url]
- The RadioAstron mission is creating a radio telescope that's larger that the Earth. But the project still needs to tackle a problem of collecting data at 144 megabits per second from multiple receivers on the ground. [url]
