Assignment #1: Existing Designs for Major Astronomical Telescopes 16.89 Spring 2007 This assignment asks you to assemble key information about an existing design of a major astronomical telescope. From your research, and the results collected by the class, we hope you will become familiar with the key drivers and trade-offs in telescope design, and with some real-world examples that may help guide your thinking during the 16.89 project. You will be assigned to study one of the following major Earth-based or space-based tele- scope designs. These designs have been studied, developed, and/or built during the past few decades for (primarily) deep space observations in the visible, infrared, and radio wave- lengths. We have excluded shorter wavelengths (X-ray, gamma ray) since these present substantially
