The 5 Massive New Telescopes That Will Change Astronomy Forever

The biggest building boom in the history of astronomy is upon us. In Chile and Hawaii and in space, astronomers are getting powerful telescopes that dwarf the current state-of-the-art instruments. When the mountain blasting and the mirror polishing are all done, we will have the clearest and most detailed views of outer space ever.
This boom has long been in the works for years, as billion-dollar telescopes don’t just fund and plan themselves.Now, these telescopes are starting to break ground. “If it all plays out as expected and budgeted,” writes Dennis Overbye in the New York Times, “astronomers of the 2020s will be swimming in petabytes of data streaming from space and the ground.” Let’s take a closer took at what these billion-dollar telescopes can do for astronomy in the decades to come.

Hypercubes are shapes with n dimensions where n is greater than the 3 dimensions of a normal cube. The Tesseract, or the 4-cube, is a 4 dimensional hypercube.
where n is the dimensional number, in any hypercube:

vertices = 2^n
edges = n(2^n-1 )
faces = 2^n-3(n-1)n

We named awesome NGC 4921…the “Snow White” Galaxy because it belongs to an unusual class of galaxies in which star formation is nearly absent, giving it a haunting translucency. Also dubbed the “anemic” galaxy due the low rate of new star formation, it is located in the Coma Cluster in the constellation Coma Berenices about 320 million light-years from Earth. The galaxy has a nucleus with a bar structure that is surrounded by a distinct ring of dust that contains recently formed, hot blue stars. The outer part consists of unusually smooth, poorly distinguished spiral arms. In May 4, 1959, a supernova explosion was observed “quite far from the center” of the galaxy.

What makes the Banaue rice terraces a world wonder? Just like the remarkable build of China’s great wall, the complex and extensive system of terraces was built largely by hand by the early ancestors of the indigenous people in the Philippines. Allegedly, if the steps are put end to end, it would encircle half the globe.
