The Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST) is a suborbital surveying experiment designed to study the evolutionary history and processes of star formation in local galaxies (including the Milky Way) and galaxies at cosmological distances. The BLAST continuum camera, which consists of 270 detectors distributed between three arrays,(More)
The Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST) is a sub-orbital experiment designed to study the process of star formation in local galaxies (including the Milky Way) and in galaxies at cosmological distances. Using a 2 m Cassegrain telescope, BLAST images the sky onto a focal plane, which consists of 270 bolometric detectors split between(More)
The balloon-borne large aperture sub-millimeter telescope (BLAST) has recently completed a highly successful long duration balloon flight from Antarctica. The instrument design incorporates a 2 m diameter primary mirror, with large format bolometer arrays operating at 250, 350 and 500 microns. By providing the first sensitive large-area (10 sq. degrees)(More)
