Tethers Unlimited has received funding from NASA to be able to construct huge structures in the orbit. The company plans utilizing automated processes and fused-deposition modeling to create SpiderFab including “multiple high-gain antennas in Earth and solar orbit to support a deep-space communications network, long-baseline interferometry systems for terrestrial planet finder programs, and submillimeter astronomy of cosmic structure”. Being delivered to the orbit in the form of raw materials, these structures would potentially build space telescopes with 10 to 100 times larger magnitude than those we have on Earth.
