Barreleyes, also known as spookfish, are the first vertebrates found to use mirrors, rather than lenses, to focus light in its eyes, British researchers said. In nearly 500 million years of vertebrate evolution, and many thousands of vertebrate species living and dead, this is the only one known to have solved the fundamental optical problem faced by all eyes -- how to make an image -- using a mirror, biologist Julian Partridge of the University of Bristol said. While the spookfish looks like...

The net result is that an 8 meters or 10 meters telescope (like the VLT or Keck), while theoretically capable...
