Fog-Resistant, Self-Cleaning Glass Developed at MIT
2012-04-30 04:23:25

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have reportedly developed a way to make glass free of glare and reflections, resistant to fog, and essentially self-cleaning, the university announced in a press release last Thursday. According to the MIT News Office, the technology is a new surface temperature that can be applied to glass, essentially eliminating reflections and making it so that water droplets bounce right off the surface, not unlike rubber balls. This new...

Image 1 - The Amazing Technology That Crafted the Webb Telescope Technology
2012-03-16 02:57:04

The creation of the next generation James Webb Space Telescope was only possible as a result of imagining and developing the industrial machines that would make it a reality. In the near future, some of that industrial technology could be in an exhibit for a museum of Industry and Technology. Imagine walking into a museum of industry and technology 10 years from today and seeing one of the incredible machines that helped perfect the James Webb Space Telescope mirrors. Those mirrors allowed...

It pays to persevere. No one knows this better than Will Zhang. For more than a decade, the astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., experimented with a new technique for efficiently manufacturing super-thin, low-cost curved telescope mirror segments to collect and focus ever-elusive, high-energy X-ray photons. The fruits of that labor -- a total of 9,000 individual mirror segments -- are now assembled into telescope optics and installed inside NASA's...

Adaptive Optics -- Adaptive optics is a technology to improve the performance of Earth-based telescopes, reversing the effect of atmospheric distortions. When light from a star or another astronomical object enters the Earth's atmosphere, the different temperature layers and different wind speeds distort and move the image in various ways (see seeing for a proper discussion). The net result is that an 8 meters or 10 meters telescope (like the VLT or Keck), while theoretically capable...
