Caption: Telescope mirror inspection. Engineers carrying out an inspection on a large telescope mirror. One is resting on a support structure. They are examining the mirror for defects and microscopic cracks, as well as other optical defects, such as stripes, inclusions and bubbles. The mirror has been cast in a furnace and slowly allowed to cool for four months. Large mirrors like this are used to observe far-away stars and galaxies.
