Robert C. Smithson (left) and Nick Marshall display a segmented mirror

Lockheed engineers display a segmented mirror that they have demonstrated helps solar telescopes to 'see' more clearly despite the Earth's atmosphere.  Robert C. Smithson (left), project manager at Lockheed Palo Alto (Calif.) Laboratories, and engineer Nick Marshall (whose face also is reflected) say the active mirror and the necessary electronics are about the size of a standard two-drawer filing cabinet., Credit Line: Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, Inc., courtesy of AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives, Physics Today Collection
