Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in USA, have captured the world’s first 3,200-megapixel images. This achievement was made possible with the help of an image sensor that will later named world’s largest camera. The same is being developed at SLAC lab.
The camera’s potential is humongous. Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) telescope situated in Chile would possibly be the first to utilize this camera, once it’s completed. The possible application is to use it in tandem with the LSST telescope to explore the field of astronomy, from dark matter to studying the universe’s composition. It can have a field of view that may fit 40 moons.
