Balloon telescope's star vision

4 posts in this topic

The "baby-boomer Universe" has been seen in unprecedented detail by a telescope slung beneath a balloon.

The BLAST experiment only flew twice and was destroyed on its final mission, but its observations and technology have had a major impact on astronomy.

The telescope probed an epoch in cosmic history some 7-10bn years ago when star formation was prolific.

Scientists tell Nature magazine that BLAST's data will help them understand better how the Universe has changed.
