IBM has shown off some of the novel computer systems that could help the world's largest radio telescope to peer 13 billion years back in time.
Einstein's Theory of Relativity, Newton's Laws of Motion and other fundamental assumptions may be revised through colossal data analysis exploration flowing from the 'Square Kilometre Array' Radio Telescope
Private company Planetary Resource is trying to collect $2 million through crowdfunding to help build a space telescope which will be accessible to the public.
Big week for NASA last week. The Kepler space telescope, the most prolific exoplanet detector ever, is paralyzed. Meanwhile, the Dream Chaser spacecraft is prepping for its first test flights.
The helium is gone! And now the world's largest, most powerful infrared telescope ever flown will be propelled to an orbit around the sun, where it will remain indefinitely.

DELHI -- India's new telescope will beat out the McMath-Pierce Solar Telescope in Arizona.
Swapping telescope time would give Japanese astronomers access to southern skies while astronomers from elsewhere would be able to use Japan's premier telescope in Hawaii.
The CSIRO has completed its Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder and opened the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory.
NASA has released the eXtreme Deep Field (XDF), the deepest-ever shot of the universe, composed of 10 years of photos from the Hubble Space Telescope.
A massive 4 to 5 ton telescope--equipped with a 570-megapixel camera--is capturing detailed images of galaxies up to eight billion light years away to better understand the mystery of dark energy.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) project will produce ten petabytes of data every year, furthering our knowledge of the universe, and studies of data science. The National Science Board will decide whether to approve LSST funding this month.
Take microscopic shots and capture the stars. Create awesome images with your iPhone and these lenses.
The world's largest optical/infrared telescope will become operational early in the next decade, according to plans tentatively approved by the Europe's leading astronomers this week.The Extremely Large Telescope will be built in northern Chile.
Adaptive optics, a technique developed by astronomers to produce pictures of stars, can image the minute details of our eye balls. The resulting 3D images can help detect diseases sooner.
Construction on the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), a 3.2 billion-pixel camera that will capture the widest, fastest and deepest view of the night sky ever observed, could begin in 2014.
IBM and ASTRON, a Netherlands-based astronomy organisation, plan to develop an exascale computer system that will form the backbone of the largest and most sensitive radio telescope.
IBM has entered into a five-year research collaboration to develop technology to help scientists study data generated by a radio telescope with a collection area as wide as the US.The €32.
It would be a tragedy if Australia and New Zealand lost the proposed $2 billion Square Kilometre Array (SKA) telescope project due to the price of our bandwidth.
