Nano-Engineered Liquid Mirror Telescopes - Universe Today
Some astronomers feel that rotating liquid mirror telescopes (LMT) may revolutionize astronomy. LMTs work because the basic laws of nature — gravity and centrifugal force — conspire together to give LMTs the perfect, parabolic shape needed for astronomical observing. And unlike ordinary telescopes with glass mirrors that are expensive to make and maintain, LMTs are … Continue reading "Nano-Engineered Liquid Mirror Telescopes"
