SOFIA

SOFIA, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, is the largest airborne observatory in the world, capable of making observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest ground-based telescopes. It has the ability to produce a higher resolution image, three times higher in quality than those captured by other observatories. It is a joint project of NASA and the German Aerospace Centre

Note:

NASA’s SOFIA is geared up to study celestial magnetic fields, star forming regions, comets and Saturn’s giant moon Titan in 2018.
