World's Largest Telescope at NJIT’s Big Bear Captures Sun’s Magnetic Field Better http://www.njit.edu/news/2009/2009-201.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2009/2009-201.phpWed, 20 May 2009 00:00:00 -0400 NJIT's new 1.6-meter clear aperture solar telescope—the largest of its kind in the world—is now operational.  The unveiling of this remarkable instrument—said to be the pathfinder for all future, large ground-based telescopes—could not have come at a more auspicious moment for science.  This year marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's telescope that he used to demonstrate that sunspots are indeed on the Sun.
