The U.S. space agency says the James Webb Space Telescope's first mirror segment has successfully completed its first series of cryogenic temperature tests. The tests were conducted in the X-ray and Cryogenic Facility at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The (tests) performed here are crucial to the success of the program since they'll ensure the mirrors and components will be able to withstand the extreme cold temperatures of...

Scientists in North America and Britain are working on a massive sun shade they say could be used to stop global warming. Roger Angel, an astronomer with the University of Arizona, has received funding from NASA to develop a canon that would fire trillions of mirrors into space to deflect the rays of the sun, Britain's Telegraph newspaper reported Friday. British inventor Tod Todeschini has been contracted to build a scaled-down version of the canon. Angel said he expects to be ready to...

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 James Webb Space Telescope, targeted for launch in 2013, is already taking an incredible journey right here on Earth. It's zigzagging up, down, and across the US to be "spit and polished" to perfection for its lofty space mission. "To find the first stars and galaxies that formed in the early universe, which are millions and even billions of light years away, the Webb telescope mirror has to be wickedly smooth," says Jeff Kegley of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. To get ready for...

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...
