Liquid-Mirror Telescopes


Comment

I looked at this as Senior Thesis project in Engineering College. One of the problems was the so-called Coriolis forces acting on the fluid. These forces would be nil at the equator and on the Poles.

Does the author know of the guy who tried this in a mine shaft in So. America?

Thanks.
