A 570 Megapixel Camera


LiveGadget,. Fermilab's 570 megapixel camera built by a team of international physicists and astronomers. In addition, 74 is also equipped with a CCD sensor with a size of a Mini Cooper. They think this camera will help solve one of the great mysteries of the cosmos. The hope is that scientists can use photographs from this camera to map the light from galaxies and supernovae, which would indicate growth in the cosmos and at least give them more evidence for the existence and effects of dark energy. In addition, they use it to map approximately 300 million galaxies. Via: darkenergysurvey.org
