An infrared telescope is a telescope that uses infrared light to detect celestial bodies. Infrared light is one of several types of radiation present in the electromagnetic spectrum. All celestial objects with a temperature above absolute zero emit some form of electromagnetic radiation. In order to study the universe, scientists use several different types of telescopes to detect these different types of emitted . 1 Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) Thermal Design Drivers and Current Thermal Design Concept A.

Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter The Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) will mea-sure landing site slopes, lunar surface roughness, and generate a high resolution 3-dimensional map of the Moon. LOLA also will measure and analyze the lunar topography to identify the permanently illuminated and permanently shadowed areas. What is LRO? Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) Launch. Photo credit: Pat Corkery, United Launch Alliance In June of , NASA launched the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, a robotic spacecraft, now orbiting the Moon at an altitude of km. LRO's primary objective is to make fundamental scientific discoveries about the Moon.. LROC is one of seven instruments on board LRO.

LOITA (Lunar Optical/Infrared Telescope Array) is a lunar-based interferometer composed of 18 alt-azimuth telescopes arranged in a circular geometry. This geometry results in excellent uv coverage and allows baselines up to 5 km long.

About this book Introduction This textbook presents the established sciences of optical, infrared, and radio astronomy as distinct research areas, focusing on the science targets and the constraints that they place on instrumentation in the different domains.

Fazio, Proceedings of SPIE Vol. (SPIE, Bellingham, WA, ) Seven-digit Article CID Number. The complex center of our own Milky Way Galaxy is a mysterious place, shrouded by dust from the view of optical telescopes, but visible to radio telescopes such as the VLA.
Ina team of observers used the VLA to make an image of the Galactic Center that revealed for the first time a “mini-spiral” of hot gas lurking there.
A cm Ritchey–Chretien telescope with diamond-turned metallic mirrors has been developed for use in the cryogenically cooled infrared space mission, Infrared Telescope in Space (IRTS). The IRTS is designed to register infrared emission from 1 μm to 1 mm with a relatively wide beam (8′ to 30′ depending on the wavelength).
It will be operated at superfluid helium temperatures (~ K). The Telescope Array observes cosmic rays with energies greater than 10 18 eV.
The surface array samples events over square miles of desert. It consists of more than scintillator detectors, each 3 m 2 located on a km (3/4 mile) square grid.
In addition, there are three telescope. IOTA began with an agreement in among five Institutions, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Harvard University, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the University of Wyoming, and MIT/Lincoln Laboratory, to build a two-telescope stellar interferometer for the purpose of making fundamental astrophysical observations, and also as a prototype instrument on which they could perfect techniques which could later lead to the development of a larger, more powerful array.
The optical signal will be routed via fiber optic cable to the LOLA instrument (see Figure 1). One of LOLA’s five lunar detectors will receive the earth pulses as well as the lunar surface events.

The Lunar-based Ultraviolet Telescope (LUT) is one of the scientific payloads onboard the Chang’e-3 lunar lander. It started ultraviolet observations from the surface of the Moon on Dec.
14, A timeline of activities associated with this project is as follows: July. The NASA/Grumman Apollo Lunar Module (LM) after descending to the lunar surface from lunar orbit, provides a base from which the astronauts explore the landing site and enables the astronauts to take off from the lunar surface to rendezvous and dock with the orbiting Command and Service Modules (CSM).
The LM consists of an. The Clementine mission () was a technology demonstration mission that produced nearly 1 million ultraviolet to visible wavelength (UVVIS) images, overhigh-resolution CCD images, overnear-infrared images, and additional topographic details of the lunar surface.
