Science with Millimetron Observatory
Millimetron space telescope has three main scientific goals:
- Study of event horizon of supermassive black holes.
- Find out how the oceans appeared on Earth, and how often planets with liquid water are formed.
- Check the limits of applicability of modern cosmological theory.
To achieve the goals Millimetron will conduct observations in two modes: as a sensitive single space telescope with 10 meters in diameter, and as a part of space-ground interferometer. You can find out more information about specific scientific tasks in the relevant sections.
