Laue lenses, for use in imaging soft gamma rays, are being improved by the French and Italians. A 20 m telescope seems in the planning. See:http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/0910/0910.0488v1.pdf

There were plans to make a gamma ray telescope out of a shuttle External Tank. I wonder if this could be done similarly:
