The world’s largest telescope, stationed above the clouds

The Hawaiian Board of Land and Natural Resources are set to build the world’s largest and most powerful telescope on top of volcano Mauna Kea.  The telescope is 30 meters high with 492 mirror segments spread around 100 feet.  This telescope is promised to capture the images 13 billion light years away from the solar system with accurate details.  This will be a joint project of California, Japan, Canada, India and Japan.  The instrument is 144 times more powerful than the Hubble Space telescope and 10 times than a Keck telescope. 

It will operate using ultraviolet wavelengths to mid-infrared.  This will work in collaboration with James Webb Space Telescope.  On approval the work is ready to start this year and complete by 2021.  Another largest telescope is in the planning process which is claimed to begin in 2021 in Chile.  This will contain 137 foot mirror larger than the TMT. This is the European Extremely Large Telescope which will attain the first position in the world shortly.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
