New Technology for Space Telescope
This is cool new technology. The advanced research arm of the military has developed a MOIRE telescope, which stands for Membrane Optical Imager Real-Time Exploitation. It is a foldable telescope that uses lightweight optics and at a lower cost than current models. The membrane is 1/1000th of an inch thick and will diffract light instead of reflect or refract light like most telescopes. Once deployed in space, the telescope will unfold to 66 feet.

About Tailwinds
Hi! Im Nancy and this is a photo of me from the 1992 Around the World Air Race. Im holding what is left of a spinner from the Tailwinds World Flyer, a Piper PA-39 Twin Comanche. The rest of the spinner had crashed into the windshield leaving a 5 inch gaping hole as we were racing over southern France approaching Cannes. We had just flown over 12 hours from Nuuk, Greenland and were racing for first place. The sun had risen and fortunately I had put on my sunglasses so there was no eye damage as the glass flew into the cockpit and into my face. Such are the mishaps and adventures of cross country air racing. And adventure is one of the reasons why I love aviation!
Tailwinds began as a catalog operation in 1986 on the kitchen table of one of our founders, Marion Jayne. Marion was my mother, personal CFI, and pilot extraordinaire! She was the 12th woman in the United States to earn her ATP rating, and was honored as one of the top 100 aviators of the century at Kitty Hawk in 2003. We began Tailwinds because we wanted to offer products that represented the love of aviation and the celebration of flight. Weve had tremendous growth since we published our first catalog, but our founding principles remain the same. Our goal is to provide a pleasant shopping experience featuring only quality products and top-notch customer service.
