Robert J. Lang is an origami composer of creatures, airbags and expandable space telescopes!

A special thanks to newbie for finding this amazing origami master/mathematician/engineer!

That stuff warmes the cockles of my heart. Science is just so damned cool, particularly when it's coupled with innovative engineering.

Hey GB!

It's great to see the integration of a few different, unlikely, specialties coming together to create innovations.

In this link he mentions about having the main lens of a space telescope, a few kilometers away from the second lens. What a mind-boggling thought!

Yeah, that hurt my head. Like a traditional telescope, without the tube. Too cool.
