The world’s largest digital camera could unlock mysteries of the universe

(CNN)The world’s largest digital camera can spot a golf ball from 15 miles away. When the Vera C. Rubin Observatory begins observations in 2023, its SUV-size camera will be able to capture complete panoramas of the southern sky every few nights. And that requires a new type of camera never seen before. The imaging sensors for the world’s largest digital camera have captured the first-ever 3,200-megapixel images by teams at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (originally named the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center) in California Once this array of sensors is installed in the camera at SLAC and delivered to the Rubin Observatory in Chile, it will contribute to the observatory’s 10-year Legacy Survey of Space and Time. This survey will serve as a catalog of billions of galaxies and astrophysical objects, essentially creating “the largest astronomical movie of all time” and unlock the mysteries of the universe.

Bright satellites in the thousands could impact future space discoveries The assembly of the sensors in the camera’s… Read full this story
