It was in the medieval times that astronomers realized that with the use of mirrors and lenses you can look far beyond the globe. In the 221 century, the level of human knowledge allows us to look into the farthest parts of the Universe—billions of light years away. Unexplored galaxies, black holes, and much more became available to the human aided eye.


Using the VISTA telescope, whose mirrors were manufactured by Shvabe, astronomers managed to generate an IR image of a sector of the sky with the widest field of view at the moment.

After processing the data, scientists detected more than ten previously unknown galaxies whose light has been travelling to our planet from the times of the early Universe.



Possesses unique properties: low density (lighter than aluminum), high mechanical resistance, strength, heat resistance, and heat stability. Their combination with the most of the positive properties of glass makes this material ideal for the production of various optical elements, including space objectives.

Only two companies in the world own the sitall production technology. One of them is Shvabe.
