Carnival of Space 601

The Carnival of Spadce 601 is up at Universe Today.

NASA is on track to launching the WFIRST space telescope around 2025. The telescope will be about the same size as the Hubble Telescope, but it will have a vastly better camera. The camera will be able to take 300-megapixel images.

The WFIRST should be able to detect up to 1 million exoplanets.
