Kilometer-baseline optical intensity interferometry for stellar surface observations
By connecting telescopes electronically, rather than optically, atmospheric turbulence is avoided and microarcsecond resolutions may be achieved.
Displays with a very high pixel density over a large physical surface have applications in scientific data analysis and crisis management.
