    Default Is there a project of larger visible light telescope than the OWL 100m telescope ?



    what about the EURO50 (50m)...
    This is so gay...every time a good science project is undertaken, it runs out of found....a 30m telescope may not even get better pics than hubble...anyway..lets go kill some Irakees with those 300 billions per year rather than making a 1 billion telescope

    Um, if I might ask, did you skip a few classes in school? Both your grammar and spelling are atrocious, and your political insights are breathtakingly stupid. If I may go down the list:

    Yes, of course, when the world economy is in the toilet, and coalitions decide to scale down their projects for the sake of saving money, they become instantly homosexual. Yes, that makes perfect sense.

    Because of adaptive optics, the telescope will get reasonably close to hubble-quality images. It's not the same as being in space, but if you tried to put that telescope in space, you would run out of money faster than they already did.

    "Let's go kill some Irakees with those 300 billions per year"....Actually, we're already spent close to 4 trillion dollars on the two wars combined. And we're spending at a rate of 600 billion per year. And the purpose of those wars is NOT to kill the Iraqi people, but the taliban terrorist group which hides in their lands.

    I have no idea what a "1 billion telescope" is, but I'm assuming you meant a telescope that costs 1 billion dollars. I would have thought that building a telescope to better our understanding of the universe and explore unknown space would be better than spending it to "Kill some Irakees".

    In other words, you are a stupid, ignorant troll who is likely under the age of 15. You are probably failing english and civics. You have no basis of knowledge and are instead spewing angry, uninformed rantings which are conveniently free from any sort of facts. I sincerely hope you don't pollute the gene pool.

    I'm not sure, but alfajoe may have been trying to make the point that we should NOT make war, rather we should invest that money in scientific projects. Did I misunderstand that part?

    I'm not sure there was much to understand in the first place.

    Also, he could just be a troll.

    hmm, so who was the larger troll? the OP, or the one who rezzed the thread from the dead over 2 years?

    anyways, it was an interesting read.
