That's about 1/25th the wavelength of light itself! In fact, if you took one of the GMT's mirrors and spread it out from the east coast to the west coast of the USA, the height of the tallest mountain on the mirror would be only 1/2 of one inch. The plan is for the Giant Magellan Telescope to begin operation with only four of its mirrors. The GMT will also have an extra mirror built, just for contingencies. The construction of the GMT's mirrors required entirely new testing methods and equipment to achieve these demanding accuracies. The entire task fell on the University of Arizona's Richard F. Caris Mirror Lab . But GMT is more than just its primary mirror. It also has a secondary mirror, which is also segmented. Each one of the secondary mirror's segments must work in concert with its matching segment on the primary mirror, and the distance from secondary mirror to primary mirror has to be measured within one part in 500 million.

TOM PEREZ is taking over the leadership of the Democratic Party at one of the lowest points in its 189-year history. Since 2009 the party has lost more than 1,000 state legislature seats, more than a dozen governor’s mansions and numerous city halls. Its defeat at the presidential election in November was as painful as it was unexpected. It is deeply divided between a progressive wing led by Bernie Sanders, a self-professed socialist senator from Vermont, and the party’s establishment, of which Mr Perez is a proper part. “I know that Tom Perez will unite us under that banner of opportunity, and lay the groundwork for a new generation of Democratic leadership for this big, bold, inclusive, dynamic America we love so much,” said Barack Obama in a statement shortly after Mr Perez’s election on February 25th. The former president had not explicitly endorsed Mr Perez, who served as his secretary of labour for almost five years, but Mr Obama was widely assumed to favour him among the nine candidates for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Homs has been one of the worst affected towns by these soulless killers, funded by the US and NATO & Gulf states, supported by Israel and sundry anti-anti-war organisations such as the Syria Solidarity UK. These proxy militant and terrorist groups under any name, always claim the lives of innocent civilians, among their victims, and leave a trail of bloodshed in their wake. The US can rebrand these monsters multiple times, but it will never wash them clean of their extremist, murderous ideology.
