Telescope

Posted on Updated on

Write a report about a specific telescope that does not use visible light (examples include Chandra and Spitzer). What wavelengths does it detect and how? What are the unique challenges of designing a telescope for those wavelengths?

Draw a diagram of the telescope. Diagrams should always:

  • Be labeled
  • Be approximately to scale
  • Be interesting to look at
  • Don’t worry about your artistic ability, that’s what the labels are for.
