Giant Rockets Could Revolutionize Astronomy

Cool!!

 

The Space Telescope Science Institute’s Marc Postman has been planning a 16-meter segmented optical/ultraviolet telescope called ATLAST, short for Advanced Technology Large-Aperture Space Telescope. The science from an aperture its size would be spectacular.

ATLAST would be nearly 2000 times more sensitive than the Hubble Telescope.

Even Cooler!!!

Ares V flings shutters open wide on our view of the cosmos. It shakes off the shackles of mass and volume constraints from science missions

A heavy lift vehicle like Ares V would open numerous posibilities for space development and science.
