New Ultra Large Telescope NULT

Compare HST to NULT
NULT is 10 times larger
Exceeding 1.5-Billion dollars in cost and representing a paradigm shift, the NULT, a 24-meter (945-inch diameter) New Ultra Large Telescope project is now established by the Big Brain. The 24-meter NULT Telescope is located partly in Earth Orbit - representing significant advancement from the original ULT Ultra Large Telescope design. After the Big Brain teamed up with NASA, many new ramifications became possible, including access to the NASA array of space telescopes with a combined monetary value worth over a trillion dollars.

Cost Effective Solution
Rather than spend a hundred thousand dollars on the creation of the ULT Ultra Large Telescope at incredible burden to time and family, it's now possible to use data, equipment, and telescopes provided by NASA worth billions of dollars each, all available for the Big Brain Project. In a cooperation with NASA, Big Brain now has access to the array of NASA Space Telescopes (see list).

Creating the 945-inch telescope
How did the Big Brain create the NULT Telescope? It all depends on the recent 10X Universe Penetrator breakthrough invention. Big Brain has utilized the Universe Penetrator which enhances telescopic data from NASA's Ritchey-Chretian 94.5-inch reflector telescope currently in Earth Orbit. Enhancing the existing mirror diameter by a factor of ten creates a New Ultra Large Telescope with the ultra large diameter of 945-inches, equal to two 40-foot towering skyscrapers placed end to end. The NULT satisfies and exceeds the Big Brain's criteria for the original ULT Project. The ULT designs are now replaced by the operational New ULT (NULT).

A Brief History of New Ultra Large Telescope
Inventive techniques are founded and rooted in early analog experiments by Humanoido using telescopes of 4.25, 8, 12.5, 40 and 50-inch diameters which were converted to 42.5, 80, 125, 400, and 500-inch telescopes. In the case of early experiments the 8-inch converted to an 80-inch telescope, letters of verification were received from the University of Arizona, Kitt Peak Observatory, and the internationally known scientist and American astronomer Dr. Charles Capen (1926-1986). The New Ultra Large Telescope is a tribute christening to Charles "Chick" Capen, whom shall always remain a great friend and colleague, to whom I remain indebted for his time, meetings, guidance, tutoring, encouragement, technical coauthoring the papers we published, and great friendship.

The dream for an ultra large telescope was born in the 1950s with the acquisition of a refracting telescope. Lunar & planetary research with this small telescope raised more questions than it answered. The desire to increase the telescope size to see more out there took shape as a series of increasingly larger telescopes were obtained. This is commonly known as aperture fever. By the 1970s, the size had increased to a 40-inch telescope fabricated from plywood and fine Belgian plate glass. It took ten years to build, during which time it was necessary to expand the home, build a large observatory, create a 40-foot scientific library, finish an optics and mirror grinding room, complete a robotic cybernetics lab and equip a computer lab.

By the 1980s, experiments led to two 50-inch telescopes made from highest grade aluminized cast resin. This moved towards the 90s with work progressing on a space telescope with a Pyrex primary ground and polished to fit NASA's GetAway Special. The dream lived on with new designs and entered into 2010 when the Ultra Large Telescope was planned under the Big Brain project. This was designed as a conventional Float Glass primary reflector with possible sizes up to 78-inches in diameter.

Research continued with alternate materials including resin, water, ice, multiple lenses, multiple mirrors, oil, film and common packaging materials. Special events took place during 2011 and 2012 leading a new clarity of thinking in the formulation and invention of a new telescope design based on many resources already available that quickly escalated into a completed and working system - the 24-meter New Ultra Large Telescope (NULT).

Potentials and Apps
This new 945-inch telescope can penetrate, with the Big Brain Penetrator, more clearly to the EOU (End Of Universe) boundaries. It may become possible to break this boundary and plot its lensing to determine if we live in one bubble of many bubble universes, though the intentions of the Big Brain relative to the EOU program are unknown at this time.
Interfacing to the 945-inch Telescope
The Big Brain has interfaced its Right Brain with 724 processors to the NULT with the Penetrator that enables a 10X diameter enhancement to the HST in Earth Orbit. This creates a 945-inch telescope with a peak operating speed in excess of 1-TeraFLOP. Already this telescope has discovered the two most remote galactic objects in the Universe located at an estimated 13 billion light years away from the Earth. This is already very close to the Universe edge of matter extinction boundary at 13.7 light years!

Uniqueness of the 945-inch Telescope
Part of the telescope remains in low Earth Orbit - this is the portion of the space telescope. The other portion of the NULT Telescope remains on Earth, driven by the Big Brain. The distance between the telescope in low Earth orbit and the connected Big Brain with its Penetrator is around 353 miles.

In the remarkable First Light image taken with the NULT telescope and processed with the Penetrator by the Big Brain, a vast Universe field of objects suddenly appears in full color (click image at left).

Shocking Potential
The shocking potential of the NULT is that it could be expanded in the future when 20X enhancements are fully in place, thus creating a 1,890-inch diameter (48-meters) telescope. That's equal to four 40-foot towering skyscrapers placed end to end. It's believed that such a powerful telescope, when coupled to the Big Brain, could penetrate through the edge of the Universe. The current largest single mirror telescope in the world is Japan's Subaru 323-inch JNLT located on Earth atop Mauna Kea in Hawaii.

Largest Telescope in the World - Apples to Oranges
Big Brain's  NULT Telescope is three times larger than the Japanese Subaru. The 945-inch Big Brain NULT Telescope has virtually become the largest telescope in the world exceeding Subaru by 622-inches.
