Looking up - 18 January 2019

There are many new large funky telescopes coming online at the moment and one of them is the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope in Chile. This is like a giant sophisticated camera taking thousands of pictures of the night sky each night. The really interesting thing is what it's looking at. Jeff Kantor who has been working on this project for many years talks to Kechil about this new telescope and one of the things its designed to detect. Astonishingly, it will look 13 billion years into the past.
