Paper Abstract

Some innovative approaches to the design of a 16 meter filled-aperture, UV to IR, high spatial resolution, wide field-of-view space telescope are presented. The purpose of this paper is to stimulate the discussion of innovative concepts for a second generation space telescope. The ideas in this paper are not tested or analyzed. They are simply concepts that might prove to be applicable and which will have to be tested and developed, and possibly rejected. Comments on the concepts presented in this paper will be welcomed by the author.
