    Islands of Hawaii. Since 1963, telescopes were built on this sacred mountain where astronomers scientists from various parts of the world partnered to take advantage of this opportunity. Today’s problem of this Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) that was planned in the year of 2012 with the intentions of having the world’s largest telescope to be built on Maunakea has caused physical, political, religion, and land issues that concerned the Hawaiian people why this telescope shouldn’t be built on this sacred

    The refractor telescope has many advantages and disadvantages. One of the disadvantages is that the lenses are made of glasses therefore it has to be perfect with no air bubbles or scratches in the glass as this will impair the users viewing. Another disadvantage is that lense are weakest around the edges because they are thinnest there and that is the only place they are being supported by the telescope so this can lead to easy breakage. The lense can have colour distortion which means when white

    environment. Telescopes, the one that changed how we view our place in the galaxy. The thing that changed the science of astronomy. They allowed us to view things that were previously invisible to the human eye. With telescopes, scientists could look beyond from our little green and blue planet. From the earliest telescopes, such as Galileo’s age to the Hubble telescope used today, they have allowed us to see how large the universe is and what makes up the universe. Before the Hubble telescope was launched

    Shannon Hall wrote Hawaii’s Telescope Controversy Is the Latest in a Long History of Land-Ownership Battles to highlight the ethics issue surrounding the use of a sacred location to further science. The bases of this ethics issue begins in the 1950-1970, when the pursuit of the Moon, technology and science trumped nearly all other concerns. During this time period allocations of property were leased to astronomers in areas where locals had very little say. This occurred on the peak of the largest

    universe is from observation. From simple optical telescopes to radio telescopes and high-energy telescopes, people constantly improve observational technologies to make more discoveries. This scientific development reached its climax as people launched a revolutionary telescope above the atmosphere for a better quality of image. These revolutionary changes in observational technology help this universe be more comprehensive to human. The first telescope-like

    How It Works- Refracting telescopes use two glass lenses to gather and focus light. They bend, or refract light as their name suggests, as it passes through different mediums. The objective lens gathers and then refracts it to a focus near the end of the tube. The image is magnified and brought to the viewer’s eye by the eyepiece. Information It Provides- Optical telescopes are used to observe objects, which are in the visible light spectrum, by magnifying the image and thereby improving the detail

    of color. Newton was also the first to make calculus an actual thing we hated in school. Isaac Newton was a busy, busy guy. In 1668, he was the one to create a telescope that didn't use lenses. Up until that point, refracting telescopes used lenses, but they suffered from something called chromatic aberration. When a refracting telescope has lenses that refract light, there's a tendency to have problems with the colored wavelengths through the glass. It results in a failure to focus properly. The
