Telescopes discussion post FOR Maggie K
PLEASE use the attached ribric to complete the discussion.
Telescopes can either be confined to the surface of the Earth, or they can be launched into space. Ground-based telescopes are limited by the fact that we are living at the bottom of an enormous and fluid atmosphere. In space, a telescope can be free from this interference. However, space-based telescopes have their own drawbacks.
If you had several billion dollars and the choice to put a telescope in space or on the ground, which would you choose? Defend your choice.
