New Genius Telescope Debuts First Light
The Rare 2012 Transit of Venus
The Tri Moded GT Genius Telescope achieved First Light in a ceremony of dedication and commemoration on June 6th, 2012, during the rare Transit of Venus. Color imaging took part on Earth and part in space above the Earth’s atmosphere. (GT resides in two places at one time)
In particular, the GT mission objective studied and imaged the solar radiation as filtered through the atmosphere of Venus, leading to a greater understanding of Venus, its atmosphere and greenhouse effect and how it can be applied to the Earth. Although the planet Venus is silhouetted against the solar disk, the objective is to study details of the Venusian atmosphere by observing the filtered characteristics of solar radiation and to better understand Venus.
Flight Panel Heads Up Display
The new GT has a flight panel which serves as an instrumentation control panel and heads up display. This is a window into the particular image view and includes data about the telescope aperture in meters and inches, a six digit numerical window index, orthogonal measurement scales, a centering index, four static position markers, the observational selected object title, a description of what's visible, a description of the mission objective, the UP Universal Penetrator setting value, details regarding the specific Adjunctive Array, details of the Multi Mag Slider (MMS) arrangement, journey time in craft mode, distance to the object being viewed, and list of credits in no particular order.
The powerful GT telescope is capable of massive image scale, as seen in this reduced image of Venus against the backdrop of the Sun. Minute image details show the Venusian atmosphere with solar radiation penetrating the outer chemical compositional layers as the planet moves across the solar orbit. Fine solar detail is instantaneously frozen in time. Full color is maintained throughout the image plane.
The GT Genius Telescope is operated by the Big Brain machine, a supercomputer with 100,500 processors of varying types. A cooperation exists between Humanoido, the Big Brain, the DSC Deep Space Center, the ULTRA Space Administration, and NASA.
