    The instrument is funded by the US Department of Energy and installed on the Nicholas Mayall Telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona, writes Wired.

    Ultimately the map will cover about 14 thousand square degrees, about one third of the sky. As a result of data analysis, astrophysicists will be able to investigate how the universe is expanding.

    The circular focal plane is located at the top and consists of 10 wedge-shaped lobes, each of which contains 500 tiny robots.

    This allows the instrument to do galactic mapping and collect accurate data about 5 thousand galaxies simultaneously.
