ULT March Upgrades

Centaur rocket Engine - NASA
NEWS - from the ULT Space Administration

This week has seen numerous project changes in the rapidly growing ULT Ultra Large Telescope Project, a project spun off by the Propeller Powered Big Brain.

The Big Brain project is all about thinking in new ways, re-purposing existing technology so that it can be readily expanded with new ideas that extrapolate beyond what is commonly known. It leads to new capabilities, advancements in science, and new discovery. If we stood on one plane of existence on the ladder of life, it's now time to move up to the next plane. We are not throwing away the old technology but rather expanding it in new ways.

For example, we know the Chinese invented the black powder rocket in 300 BC . But in today's modern technological world, how could this relate to our rockets 2,312 years later? In touring the museum in China, on display was a style of ancient rocket that looked almost exactly like the Space Shuttles arrangement of Solid Rocket Boosters. Building new upon old. As the 12th century theologian and author John of Salisbury said, "We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours." (a treatise on logic called Metalogicon, written in Latin in 1159)

Powerful Devices & Techniques
THE ULT now has extra equipment and instrumentation which gives add on capabilities. Recapping the end results, the Telescope has the following added features and upgrades:

* a larger telescope diameter
* ability to function in multiple Adjunctive Mode
* a new Accumulator
* higher resolution
* greater ability to make new discoveries
* a new front end display window
* Repeatability - tracking of additional parametric identities
* ability to save, store for long periods, compress, and recall time
* new ability to be in multiple places at the same time

Front End Display Window
The  new Front End Display Window now includes XY scaling for image object identification and location. The four pins holding the image points of reference are improved. Contrasting color now identifies new added iconic representations for additional parametric identities. A larger viewing window is created which can show more observational data per unit area. The window now reports the current mission, location of the Adjunct, modes for telescope and obverse travel, the Multi Mag Slider is reported as engaged as Multi Pass with icon, a journey time in years units based on light speed is given, the type of system engaged is noted, and credits are established. The window supports either color, black & white, or variations and is stored and transferable by jpg files. The first trial window incorporating these features is seen with the deep stellar abyss. In the future, the window may also report the type of Adjunct and the number of Adjuncts and a more advanced version could include Accumulator information and settings. There's a limitation to the current window size and Portrait shape, which may change to Landscape Mode for side by side Instrumentation Control Panels.

Ability to Make New Discoveries
The ULT began off the bat with discovery in its first Jupiter image, showing a remarkably detailed image of the GRS Great Red Spot that not only filled the entire Telescope Viewer Screen but showed hundreds if not thousands of smaller storms raging inside the spot, leading to new knowledge about the centuries old feature. In the first Saturnian Ring System image, using a new Adjunct tested for higher resolution and technique, the clear visible indication of rocks and boulders appeared in many of the twenty rings that were examined, heralding in a new era of Big Brain Telescope based planetary exploration. The ULT Space Administration is going on about the business of science and research and does not want to get into a decades old controversy like the microbes found in the Mars rock. So information and discoveries will be presented in the form of blogs with a disclaimer that it's left up to the reader to determine suitability of information. It's possible, in the future, a book will be written and released detailing the ULT.

New Thinking About Time
It's entirely new thinking about time and the management of time based systems that leads to new ULT power and capabilities. The historical technology allows us to take a time span of images and modify their time structure. Modifications allow us to manipulate time and control it. With existing space adjuncts, this concept is greatly expanded. The ULT is built upon data based on the dimension of time. Images in the Solar System and from Deep Space are from different times. Managing the time properly and developing new time managers allows the data to be recorded, played back, intensified, amplified, enhanced, added, and manipulated in ways to increase ULT performance. Time managers must take into account the variables of Adjuncts, Positions of Nodes, Acquisition time, Trip Time, Manager Technique Time, Operation Duration Time, and Event Time.

Multiple Places at the Same Time
This new feature of the ULT indicates that the telescope can reside in several locations at the same time. This upgrade is made possible by new thinking which is no longer linear, but rather incorporates not one but many prime spaced Adjuncts in a three dimensional Solar System Array (with some exception applying to distances outside of the Solar System). This requires some calculations to make it functional and it's hoped the Big Brain will take care of this in future built instrumentation.

The new Accumulator invention for the ULT Telescope is simply revolutionary because it enables a quantum jump increase in apparent resolution and telescope size. It accomplishes this by combining the data from two or more, or many Adjuncts. The Accumulator can also sum the accumulated data from a single Adjunct, making the entire Telescope perform with significant enhancements. No longer is the Universe Penetrator (UP) the only device that can increase telescope resolution and apparent size (by 10X). It is believed the Accumulator will bring about enhancements of 100X and 1000X on top of the UP. Along with the UP, this converts to 1000X and 10,000X. This is not an empty magnification reference at all, but rather references resolutions that determine functional aperture of the Telescope. It puts the telescope aperture into the range (from 24 meters) of 1.5, 15, and 150 miles wide. The accumulator also increase the clarity and field penetration yielding new powerful data about places in space and time.

Multiple Adjunctive Gold
Thanks to NASA, the ULT Telescope moved up with access to over 90 currently operating spacecraft and space telescopes. This space network number is increasing steadily and leads to a database so large that we're scrambling to find more office space at the newly formed ULT Space Administration. (another TeraByte drive was recently added) Currently this is a national effort with the USA leading the available Space Network in resources, tools and data. However, if the U.K., Japan, and France come on board, the Telescope's performance could be fine tuned to include more objects and more capabilities. An increasingly larger database is required to formulate and track parameters and the project is currently looking towards (and now utilizing) NASA for real time storage solutions similar to Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet). As previously blogged, we've utilized new methods that can, for example, use one satellite in Earth orbit and combine it with another beyond the Moon for incredible gains in data, light gathering power, resolution and aperture. This technique is now expanded beyond the Two Factor, i.e. can handle Multiple Adjunctive Systems for arrays that possibly and most likely go beyond capabilities of any telescope previously conceived.

Higher Resolution for Better Vision
The key issue of the telescope has always focused on aperture (telescope diameter) which is directly dependent on resolution. As the aperture increases, whether mechanically and optically constructed or synthesized, the resolution increases. With the advent of the UP Universe Penetrator, Adjunctive resolution increased up to a factor of ten. Now with the add on invention of the Accumulator, the factor of increase is vastly larger. Next came the upgrade to two Adjuncts for an incredible jump in resolution. Then multiple adjuncts in three dimensional space (no longer linear) were added for another great quantum jump in resolution. It is always believed that the previous upgrade is the final one, then something new is discovered. It's currently challenging to think of exceeding a telescope 150 miles in aperture, but given the vastness of space to work with, and NASA as a friend, anything goes.

Larger Telescope Diameter
See discussion regarding "Higher Resolution for Better Vision" and Accumulator.

One area being added to the Telescope's operations is that of Repeatability. The goal is to provide enough data regarding the Parametric Identity Pool (PIP) so that one could repeat the observations and settings on the same or another object at a future time. The first indication of increasing the PIP is the new ULT Voyaging Craft Window
put into effect with the Deep Stellar Abyss Mission.
