Distant Quasar Imaging

Postby kg » 18 Jul 2012, 13:48

I thought there might be a few of you to whom the following article would be of interest:

APEX telescope takes part in sharpest observation ever

It's not only a fascinating article, but the image is mind-blowing, considering it's of an object some 5 billion light years distant, all done from Earth-based telescopes! It begs one to wonder what could be 'seen' with a similar space-based system, where it would be possible to have even greater separation between the telescopes.
