What downside of ground based telescopes interests you the most, and how does this relate to the goal of your project?
When it comes to ground based telescopes, I find that the image quality of those telescopes is the most interesting downside because there is room for improvement. In my next post I plan to discuss some future telescopes including future ground based ones that are far more advanced than the current ones. For example, the giant Magellan telescope along with many more will be able to get better images than those of the Hubble space telescope. Since Andrei, Brendan, and I are working on a similar project we each have separate tasks that correlate with each other and mine focuses more on the instruments that astronomers could use to search for the planets we have on our target list. We can determine where a planet that is habitable could be but without the proper instruments to measure it’s bio signature, we wont be able to actually see if there is life.
