Okay, as you probably have guessed, i dont have a degree in optics and im not an astro physicist. So here is another question for some of you more knowlegeble types:<br /><br />The power, versatility and range of radio telescopes are determined by their size. An array of radio telescopes can work as one as if it were one huge telescope detecting EM radiation from billions of light years away. Optical telescopes can detect visible EM from billions of ly away, but are limited by the size of the lense and mirror. So: why wouldnt a hundred hubble size telescopes each working inependently, but jointly aligned and in a tight cluster not have the same effect, in essence creating an apature a hundred times more powerful than a single hubble? <br /><br />Anyone?? <br />or is this a dumb question all together?<br /><br />does anyone know if this would work?? 11 views no answers yet... maybe i should go find a physics prof.
