Zvuci ko SF u danasnjem svijetu, i kad sam vidio naslov uplasil sam se da je jedan od mojih omiljenih web portala izgubil kredibilitet, al izgleda da je istina. NASA je na poklon dobila dva svemirska teleskopa od strane americke NRO obavjestajne agencije, koje ocito ovi imaju viska par komada O.o.

Al naravno da imam caka, sateliti nisu rabljeni nego su nekoristeni, u biti toliko nekoristeni da su jos uvijek dole na Zemlji zapakirani u nekom skladistu (za koje sad NASA placa godisnju rentu od milju dolara - vjerojatno otuda izvire frisko filantrosko raspolozenje ). Druga caka je sto je NRO sa satelita skinula sav hardware koji je jos uvijek "classified", pa ih treba doraditi, ali najvazniji dio, optika je ostala netaknuta.

Citat:
"NASA’s collection of space telescopes just got a bit bigger thanks to an extraordinary gift from America's National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) intelligence agency. The space agency announced on Monday that the NRO has given it two surplus spy satellites that are more advanced than the Hubble Space Telescope. If the money can be found for a mission for the spy “birds” then NASA will not only have two possible replacements for the retiring Hubble, but also an added ability to scan the skies for supernovae, locate new exoplanets and even seek the answer to the fate of the universe."

Citat:
NASA already has a project for studying dark matter called WFIRST, which stands for Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope. The only problem is the WFIRST seems hopelessly stalled with a price tag of US$1.5 billion, a launch date of 2024 and the need to lift the spacecraft into a very expensive solar orbit. Grunfeld thought that the spy satellites, with their ability to view in the infrared range, might be a viable alternative to WFIRST and when he showed the craft to the WFIRST spacecraft engineers, they reportedly said: “Don’t change a thing.”
