Huge mirror telescope

Scientists at Israel’s Technion are working with NASA to build FLUTE – the Fluidic Telescope. It will have self-healing mirrors with a 50-meter aperture (compared to the 6.5-meter James Webb) and will see distant objects in greater detail. If it works, future apertures could reach 10km.
