Chandra X-ray Observatory
Outer space is full of radiation that can teach us about the universe. From infrared to visible light to x-rays. NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is a space telescope detecting X-rays from very hot regions of the universe. X-ray observations can only be done in space because X-ray interacts with nitrogen and oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere. On top of this due to the high energy X-ray radiation, the longer the telescope, the better the resolution. This resulted in Chandra being a massive 19.5 meter (64.0 ft) long telescope, which was limited by the maximum cargo length of the Space Shuttle Columbia.
