Spitzer Space Telescope Pictures
A part of the NASA mission to put numerous space telescopes into the
out space is the -The Spitzer Space Telescope. This is so that NASA can
receive more and more photos of the planets, stars, galaxies & constellations
This telescope of Spitzer was launched into outer space in 2003. The orbit in which this particular telescope has been stationed is different from what telescopes are accustomed to having; instead of having a geocentric orbit this one has a heliocentric orbit, tracking in its orbit the Earth, while it also moves away form the Earth at a pace of nearly one-tenth astronomical unit each year (therefore termed "earth-trailing" orbit).
Then chef mirror of the telescope of Spitzer is of eighty-five centimeter in width, f/12 (that means the central length is twelve times bigger as compared to the width of the chef mirror) and is beryllium made.
The satellite that houses this telescope has 3 devices which shall permit it to click pictures and at the same time permit photometry from three to one hundred eighty micrometers, five to forty micrometers for spectroscopy & five to hundred micrometers for spectrophotometry.
So who are we concerned with all this? Well in simpler terms the telescope
of Spitzer is so powerful that it can click photographs of objects whose
clarity is far superior as compared to any other outer space telescope
an even better than that of the Hubble.
So therefore before its launch the Hubble was considered to be the best
but now this tag can be given to the telescope of Spitzer. When we have
a look at the pictures that have been derived from this telescope it is
evident that the quality of photos is of high class.
Now that the telescope of Spitzer is in operation researchers & scientists
will both have the opportunity to receive newer and much more accurate
pictures that will go a long way in gaining fresh knowledge about the
unknown entities that exists out there.
But as of today it's up there and fully operational giving people at
NASA and people all over the world some great photos of the space to study
with. Its heliocentric orbit makes it place in a prime position to execute
image capturing that cannot be duplicated by any new space telescope thus
making it a special kind of telescope.
