The engineers at NASA are studying two new technologies to help image distant Earth-like planets. Coronagraphs are tiny instruments fitted inside telescopes to block light and help scientists study clues as to whether life is present on a planet. Starshades also block light and produce clearer photographs of distant planets. Both of these technologies are used with telescopes and provide scientists with enhanced photographs of space. Part of the “Crazy Engineering” series.
