The European Southern Observatory’s recently adopted 4LGSF laser guide star facility, Paranal in Chile will be a high-energy laser beam to the Orange Saturn, which astronomers can take just to get clearer images of space only.
Yes, the European Southern Observatory’s recently adopted 4LGSF laser guide star facility, Paranal in Chile will be a high-energy laser beam is directed at the orange Saturn – No, no, we’re not going to destroy it, human beings are not to the point, this Just to let astronomers to take clearer images of space only.
Laser why we can play this role? The original telescope observed image due by atmospheric effects, will have some distortion. Although we can analyze atmospheric turbulence to correct it, but the prerequisite is that the observed objects around the place must be very close to several bright stars, to correct correction effect, which is very difficult. The laser will be fired at targets in contact with the atmosphere, forming a “artificial star” so scientists can get the desired effect is clear in the observation of any astronomical bodies.
Perhaps these feats and our daily lives and there is no contact, but certainly everyone Mito like to watch:
