M8 by Slooh Space CameraCredit: Slooh Space CameraM8 was captured by an amateur astronomer, Dave Lrkn, using the Slooh Space Camera, an online night sky observing service that allows users to observe the sky using telescopes around the world.
NASA is experimenting with small space cameras made almost entirely of 3-D printed parts. One experimental telescope, sized to fit inside a four-inch CubeSat, will likely be finished this September, according to the agency. The telescope will then undergo vacuum and vibrational testing, but there are no immediate plans to send it into space. Perhaps future generations of 3-D printed space cameras will make the journey.
