The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA, is planning to launch a next-generation space telescope that will provide the largest picture of the universe ever seen, with the same depth and clarity as the Hubble Space Telescope.
The breakdown of Einstein’s general theory of relativity across large swaths of the universe. Einstein’s theory of general relativity predicted that the space-time around Earth would be not only warped but also twisted by the planet’s rotation.
1. The development means that a single WFIRST image will have details equivalent to that of 100 pictures taken from Hubble.
2. The Telescope’s cameras will be just as sensitive as Hubble’s cameras.
3. The pictures will in turn help astronomers explore some of the greatest mysteries of the cosmos, including why the expansion of the universe seems to be accelerating.
4. The mission’s wide field of view will allow it to generate never-before-seen big pictures of the universe.
5. However, its 300-megapixel Wide Field Instrument will image the sky area 100 times larger.
