Kuiper

NASA's Kuiper Airborne Observatory provides an alternative to conventional telescopes and Hubble. The converted Lockheed Starlifter transport aircraft carries a 90cm diameter infrared telescope. It operates far above the atmosphere and makes about 70 flights a year. The flexibility of Kuiper means that it is able to respond within hours to a new event like a supernova.
