Ordering the Heavens: Roman Astronomy and Cosmology in the Carolingian Renaissance (History of Science and Medicine Library)

According to ratings of medieval manuscript texts and diagrams, the e-book indicates how Roman resources have been utilized in the age of Charlemagne to reintroduce and extend a qualitative photo of articulated geometrical order within the heavens.

Started operations 1979. 6m - Cerro La Silla, Chile. Since 1976. 5m - German- Spanish telescope, Calar Alto, Spain. de/CAHA) Since 1985. 5 m built by ESO in Chile. Since 1989. 5 meter. ). Built by consortium of 3 universities and National Optical Astronomy Observatory. Located on Kitt Peak. A modern telescope, engineered so that the enclosure only minimally degrades the seeing. Because of this (and better optics) WIYN supposedly gets better images than the 4 meter, located on the same mountain.

Run by Caltech and University of California schools. NASA is providing some operating funds, and has about 1/6 of time for distribution to astronomers outside of Caltech/UC system. The telescope mirrors are made up of 36 hexagonal segments, each 2 meter across, which are actively controlled to provide a stable figure. html) LBT - Large Binocular Telescope. 4 meters in diameter. This telescope is under construction on Mt. Graham in southeast Arizona. The telescope is being built by the University of Arizona and institutions in Italy and Germany.

If astronomers had all the resources they wanted to do astronomy, where would we build telescopes? The Moon might be the “perfect” place. The Moon has essentially no atmosphere, so is equivalent to Earth orbit in this respect. The Moon is better than Earth orbit because it provides a nice solid place to build telescopes. With much lower gravity than on the Earth, and no wind to shake our telescope structures, telescopes could be much lighter than on Earth. Some people have thought about and made initial plans for telescopes on the Moon, but the price tag would be very high with present rocket technology.
