See also: Does the Future of the Space Industry Depend on Kickstarter? The improvement is thanks to a shape-shifting secondary mirror that corrects the imperfections of Earth’s atmosphere. It can do this almost in real time — 585 points on the mirror can change their positioning as fast as 1,000 times per second.
