Trascope or when the Earthbecomes a telescope

Astronomers are always looking for bigger and bigger telescopes. The bigger a telescope, the more light can get into it. Every ray of light conveys information of its source and on the path it traveled to reach the telescope. So collecting more lights means collecting more data on celestial objects which astronomers so desperately need to answer their numerous questions. Scientists and engineers deployed different methods for building bigger telescopes so that they can collect more light, but reaching this goal may not need a super telescope at all! Imagine a one meter telescope in space which can collect light as much as a 150 meter telescope. This imagination is possible, or at least it is the proposal recently mentioned by an American astronomer; using a telescope in space directed towards the Earth’s atmosphere and use it as a lens. This device will be called Trascope. We took a look at the struggles in the way of building super telescopes and Trascope.
