Blast - a Balloon-Borne Large Aperture Submillimetre Telescope

  title={Blast - a Balloon-Borne Large Aperture Submillimetre Telescope},
  author={M. Devlin},
A new generation of sub-orbital platforms will be operational in the next few years. These new telescopes will operate from airborne and balloon-borne platforms where the atmosphere is transparent enough to allow sensitive measurements to be made in the submillimeter bands. The telescopes will take advantage of state-of-the-art instrumentation including large format bolometer arrays and spectrometers. Other papers in this volume will deal specifically with the potential of these bands. In this… Expand
