Space Telescope

The new designed space telescope is physically attached to the side of the outpost in space - a tiny space station operated by the Big Brain machine space initiative and Humanoido Labs.

Operations are by human, robot, and/or remote. The telescope can robotically slew to the object and computer alt-az drives can take over for object tracking and guiding. Due to large mass and size, NASA took a different approach for the Hubble Space Telescope HST by not attaching it to the ISS International Space Station (see illustration showing the HST release into space by the ISS robot arm).

There are no plans for the tiny space shuttle to deliver the telescope into space because the telescope will be manufactured into the tiny space station. When the station is active and activated, the telescope is expected to be ready for operations. This will prevent space walks to install the external components or evacuation of air from inside the station. Telescope aperture sizes considered are 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, 20, and 24 inch diameters. Computers will multiply these diameters by a factor of ten, creating 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 180, 200 and 240-inch apertures.
