Humungous Big! 3 New Giant Telescopes That Will Transform Image Clarity

The printing of authentic cosmic imagery is fast approaching its next tipping point. Powerful new telescope technology will soon be coming online in Hawaii, Chile, and in outer space. These new telescopes far surpass what we have long considered state-of-the-art. At the very least, they promise to give us a profoundly sharper view of the universe. Here at Big Bang Prints, we can only imagine the improvement in sharpness and detail.

Let's take a look at these big, bad beauties.

Giant Magellan Telescope (Chile)

Another addition to Chile's powerful collection of telescopes will be the Giant Magellan Telescope, planned for Las Campanas Observatory in the southern Atacama. The GMT's innovative design features seven of today's largest stiff monolith mirrors. These mirrors will focus light onto seven smaller, flexible secondary mirrors, then back to a central primary mirror and finally to advanced imaging cameras, where the light can be analyzed. "First light" from the telescope is expected by 2023.

Extremely Large Telescope — Chile

The European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) is set to be the largest telescope worldwide. It has a diameter of 39 meters which will let in 13 times more light than current telescopes.

That power will allow astronomers to capture extremely distant solar systems and detect signs of dark energy. Already under construction, the ELT is set to start operation in 2024 It will be the largest telescope on Earth, boasting a main mirror that stretches 39 meters across!

James Webb Space Telescope

A successor of the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will traverse outer space, unencumbered by Earth's atmosphere. JWST's primary mirror is 3X larger than the Hubble Space Telescope. JWST will specialize in detecting the infrared spectrum rather than visible light, allowing it to investigate leftovers from the early universe. After many delays, it has been reset to launch by 2021.

What This Means For Authentic Space Image Printing

For those who appreciate and revel in the cosmos, nothing inspires more awe and wonder than viewing a galaxy or nebula in extreme detail. To actually see individual stars inside a neighboring galaxy and imagining what alien planets are orbiting them and then realizing that what you are looking at is NOT an artist rendering but a real HD picture. It's really out there!

We can only imagine the possibilities. With the kind of resolution the telescope developers are talking about, it can bring real astro printing to a whole new level. Hello 50 ft. planetarium wall mural!

The Universe is expanding, just like us!

Welcome to our new website.  We hope you like our new look.  We've added multiple finishing options so you can proudly display your authentic space images the way you want.  We've added a super-affordable Poster Paper option and our top-tiered Stretched Canvas choice gives you a very popular way to display your authentic space image as a finished art piece.  Imagine being the envy of fine artists, knowing that what you're displaying goes much deeper than any art could ever do.

In addition to our prints, we'll soon be offering our exclusive remote controlled special effect LED light bulbs, officially introduced to the public in our exclusive "Space Cave" at the 2015 NEAF.  After dark, these special RGB color bulbs make space imagery, especially Nebulae, literally come ALIVE.  Although best experienced in person, this video from the NEAF expo gives you a good idea of the magical effect.  It was the talk of the show!  Even our fellow vendors came to visit the Space Cave to see what all the buzz was about.

Our motto is "Space Out Your Space".  In that spirit, we'll be adding even more products to do just that, space out your space.  From high quality star ceiling projectors to space-themed music CDs, we can't wait to start our search for the many ways to space out.  Following our criteria for quality and authenticity, we want to make our website THE worldwide place to go for space-related products.

Along with our universe, we believe that all of us are on the leading edge of expansion.  We'll always be reaching for what's next, forever.  Hope you'll join us for the infinite ride.  This is going to be fun!
