    Yeah, because BYU is known for their research. Medical research and hospitals must not be very important, either, right?

    BYU has done something similar, though, that we should give them props for. How about those fake moonbuggies that they drove around the desert, pretending they were on the moon? That was so cool, BYU did a commercial about it that was shown during BYU games on TV. That was awesome! Thanks for that contribtution to science, BYU!

    the captured pictures on KSL news. Pretty awesome pictures. We are just a tiny speck in the cosmos. I do hope they stay in focus and getting more funding in the future to keep the telescope running and maybe even added on to it.

    How many new universes did this telescope capture?

    That's a huge story since we've only known about that one universe before. You know. The Universe. Must be one heck of a telescope.

    There is now the ability to compensate for atmospheric based disturbances in ground based telescopes.

    The article didn't mention if this telescope has this feature?

    Does it?

    It would help if a science specialist wrote scientific articles, so interesting questions would be asked and answered in the article.

    This must not be very important or BYU would have done this already.
