NASA's Mega Hubble – The Roman Space Telescope

NASA's Mega Hubble - The Roman Space Telescope
What do you do when the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) makes you an offer you can’t refuse?. Well in the case of NASA you update an existing design to create a Hubble on steroids that can cover the same amount of sky as one hundred Hubble’s, drastically cutting down the time survey the sky and also more accurately look for Neptune sized planets around nearby stars and gather evidence to hopefully find out what dark energy really is, this is NASA upcoming Roman space telescope.

  1. It is very simple to be saved and takes only a minute to explain. Please let me show you how to get to Heaven from the Bible, God's Word…

    Man is a Sinner in the Eyes of a Holy God.

    Isaiah 53:6, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”Romans 3:19, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.”John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”Romans 3:10, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

    There is a Price For Our Sin―Burning in Hell Forever.  

    Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”2nd Thessalonians 1:8, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”Revelation 20:15, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

    Jesus paid that price by dying on the cross and shedding His blood; Christ was buried and bodily rose again the third day!

    Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”1st Timothy 1:15, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”1st Peter 1:18-19, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ…”1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” This is the Gospel.

    By faith in Jesus Christ ALONE we are immediately saved.Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”John 11:25, “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”1st Corinthians 3:11, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

    Salvation is NOT found in a religion or good works, but in a Person… The LORD JESUS CHRIST!

    Simply BELIEVE the Gospel and You Are Saved!

  2. I am so used to documentaries narrated by english accents, with the great David Attenborough for so many years, I don't want them any other way. Curious droid and Mega projects keep me tuned and interested the whole time.

  3. if stationed in the L-2, it would mean the telescope could not be serviced (fixed/refuiled?refurbished)–. nothing in the way of manned craft, that we have now can service anything that far. that is a BIG draw back. had we put the Hubble in say, L-2. I would ve been as good as lost, since it arrived in space largely blind/blured visioned. it had to be serviced many times. refueled, and upgraded, Hubble has worked for nearly 30 years. Roman would be more like a shooting star: come and go before one can say uncle (Sam)

  4. So, lets get this straight. The James Webb Telescope was supposed to cost 500 million dollars, but has now reached a cost of around 10 billion dollars? At what point do the cost overruns become so huge that the value of the intelligence the telescope can bring is no longer worth its cost? How many telescopes could have been put into orbit had not the James Webb telescope not sucked all of the money out of the scientific community?

  5. ? I thought the difference between the Hubble and web satellites is that hubble can take light pictures and web can only take photos in inferred.
    Plus web has a very large mirror.

  6. I don't understand why we don't just upgrade the hubble so that we can still use it, why throw it away just because its starting to get old. its still got a lot of life left in it, and can be used for other things!. we need to get as much use out of them as we can, especially when you consider how much they cost us to start with!!!.

  7. Jesus, around the 5:30 mark, when you remark on the 2 nanometer-scale imperfections on the mirror scaling to only 6 millimeters if the mirror was Earth size, well, that's the first time I've ever heard the comparison 'just right', and got a true insight into just how small a nanometer IS. Criminny that's tinimmy!!!
