Jun 2005
Schott Glas AG of Mainz, Germany, has contracted to supply a mirror holder for a prototype telescope. The mounted system is made of the company's Zerodur glass ceramic product. The telescope design will be used in the asteroid observatory called PanStarrs (Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System). The system, which will include four wide-angle telescopes, will enable astronomers to calculate the flight paths of asteroids and comets, representing a possible early warning system. It is being established as part of the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy.

The scientific observation of celestial radiation that has reached the vicinity of Earth, and the interpretation of these observations to determine the characteristics of the extraterrestrial bodies and phenomena that have emitted the radiation.
