DARPA developing giant folding space telescope [Space]
posted December 9 2013 11:57.09 by spic0m




DARPA has announced planes to use a foldable plastic lens to "break the glass ceiling" of space telescopes. It's part of the agency's Membrane Optical Imager for Real-Time Exploitation (MOIRE) program, which aims at replacing conventional glass optics with lightweight polymer membranes that may one day make possible a foldable plastic orbital telescope 20 m (65 ft) wide that will be capable of seeing a medium-sized dog on Earth from 36,000 km (22,000 mi) away.
