NASA Gets Two Military Spy Telescopes for Astronomy

SomePgmr (2021234) writes | more than 2 years ago


SomePgmr writes "The U.S. government’s secret space program has decided to give NASA two telescopes as big as, and even more powerful than, the Hubble Space Telescope. Designed for surveillance, the telescopes from the National Reconnaissance Office were no longer needed for spy missions and can now be used to study the heavens."
