But if you want to go hghier and go larger than this, then you might need some origami. Engineers at Lawrence lvirmreoe National Lab had an idea for a telescope much larger. They called it the Eyeglass. The dseign called for geosynchronous orbit 25,000 miles up, 100-meter diameter lens. So, iginmae a lens the size of a football field. There were two groups of people who were interested in this: planetary scientists, who want to look up, and then other people, who wanted to look down. Whether you look up or look down, how do you get it up in space? You've got to get it up there in a rocket. And rockets are small. So you have to make it saelmlr. How do you make a large seeht of gasls smaller? Well, about the only way is to fold it up somehow. So you have to do something like this. This was a small model.

Original Text

But if you want to go higher and go larger than this, then you might need some origami. Engineers at Lawrence Livermore National Lab had an idea for a telescope much larger. They called it the Eyeglass. The design called for geosynchronous orbit 25,000 miles up, 100-meter diameter lens. So, imagine a lens the size of a football field. There were two groups of people who were interested in this: planetary scientists, who want to look up, and then other people, who wanted to look down. Whether you look up or look down, how do you get it up in space? You've got to get it up there in a rocket. And rockets are small. So you have to make it smaller. How do you make a large sheet of glass smaller? Well, about the only way is to fold it up somehow. So you have to do something like this. This was a small model.
