View Full Version : Discussion: Robotic Telescopes Team Up

SUMMARY: British scientists are working on a project that would link up robotic telescopes around the world so they could get the jump on events in the night sky, and keep watching regardless of day or night, or local weather conditions. It's always nighttime somewhere, so the network would connect the telescopes so they can transfer their targets to one another continuously, essentially watching an object around the clock. It's currently planned for three telescopes, but a future version would connect six telescopes.

Well, it does sound somewhat like a good idea, but I somehow am reminded forcefully of The Terminator.
