    Telescopes help us discover more about space and other things. There are many places to put a telescope space or on land. They all have there own advantages or disadvantages. A warm climate on Earth is a great place to put a telescope. Ground based telescopes are good for many reasons people can’t tamper with it, easier for maintenance, and they cost less than a space telescope. There are many other telescopes in space and on land like the Hubble Space Telescope and the Square Kilometer Array.

  • What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Telescope

    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

  • Hawaii's Telescope Controversy Analysis

    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

    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

    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

    was the first chemical reaction humans learned to use and control? ( Chemistry has helped our world come up with new, advanced technology to benefit us all. Chemistry played a role in developing the periodic table, x-rays, and the telescope. Primarily, the Periodic Table of Elements was primarily thought to be developed by Dmitri Mendeleev. However, “Antoine Lavoisier first established the modern concept of the element in the late 1700s” (worldbook). Mendeleev published his version

  • Windows on the Universe: Refracting Telescopes

    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

  • Essay on Hubble Telescope

    The Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most amazing machines in orbit right now. In 1946, an astrophysicist named Dr. Lyman Spitzer proposed that a telescope in space would reveal better and clearer images that are even far from earth than any ground telescope. This idea was very extravagant because no one had yet launched a rocket into outer space. As the US space program excelled quickly over the early years, Spitzer lobbied NASA and Congress to develop a space telescope. In 1975, the European

    “The Hubble, has given us nothing less than an ontological awakening, a forceful reckoning with what is the telescope compels the mind to contemplate space and time on a scale just shy of the infinite.” implied Ross Anderson, an engineer. With this one telescope, created by a normal astronomer, scientists and astronomers are able to see space as never seen before. They are able to make mind boggling observations that contemplate space to an infinite scale. Thousands of discoveries about space have
