Understanding Telescopes

Understanding Telescopes
Telescopes serve at the forefront of discovery for modern astronomy. Land based telescopes have a rich history for discovering planets, moons and stars, but are limited due to the Earth’s atmosphere. In addition to light pollution and turbulence, only a small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is able to penetrate the atmosphere for land-based observation. However, modern technology has afforded astronomers the opportunity to deploy space-based telescopes capable of observing other facets of the electromagnetic spectrum. For this assignment, review the accompanying lecture notes prior to beginning your research project.
Remember to use the Assignment Rubric to review grading requirements.
For this assignment you will create a tri-fold brochure covering both land and space based telescopes addressing the points as described below. Be creative and use fonts, graphics, and colors to your advantage to create a professional looking tri-fold brochure you could present to inform an audience.
As you begin working on your brochure assignment this week, I suggest reviewing the following resources. These resources will help you to design a creative brochure using PowerPoint – feel free to continue exploring additional resources, too. One thing to keep in mind as you design your brochure is to be creative AND informative. Remember to keep your brochure to two pages (one front, one back). Also, plan to include your citations in APA format on the brochure itself – these should not be provided separately. You will need to save your final product in PDF format to upload the assignment.

Land-based Telescopes
Give a brief introduction to how telescopes work – both refractor and reflector.
Include a schematic of how light travels through refractor and reflector telescopes.
What are some advantages and disadvantages of each type of telescope?
What is an observatory? Where are they located – and why?
What are the pros/cons of land-based telescopes versus space-based telescopes?
Space-based Telescopes
In addition to the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), select one telescope from the list below. (Note: You are expected to complete a total of three (3) space telescopes: HST, JWST, and one of your choosing from the list below.)
Spitzer Space Telescope
Chandra Observatory
Herschel Space Observatory
Planck Observatory
Fermi Space Telescope

I want my third choice to be the NuSTAR.

Summarize the mission for each telescope – purpose, lifespan, cost, sponsor (ie: NASA, ESA, etc). Note key features of the instrumentation – for example, what spectrum the telescope sees, what specialized equipment is used, etc. Also find an image/diagram/schematic of the telescope for your brochure.
Reminder: Don’t forget to cite your resources in APA format on the brochure. If needed, you can shrink the font size of citations to optimize your usable information areas on the brochure.
