Mirror, Mirror Out in Space, How To Dust Off Your Face?

coondoggie writes "One of the challenges with space telescopes and other satellite instruments is keeping their mirrors, lenses, and other surfaces free of dust and other contaminants. A Goddard researcher now has developed a way to dust these devices while the instruments are in space."

When quoting someone else, it helps to give us a link back to the original source.

As of now, we can't read the thing you are quoting, which means:

1) We can't read up about HOW they are going to clean the mirrors.

2) We don't know if you mis-quoted it.

3) We don't know if you left out key things

4) We don't know if it was some random lunatic off the street as opposed to someone important.

Whoops, the name of the poster was the link. Wierd. If a poster's name is a link, I expect it to take me to something about the poster, not the post.
