Telescopes and Paraboloids

Paraboloids are all around us, like in the shape of satellite dishes, car headlighs and telescopes.

We interviewed Dr. Peter Taylor (Queen's University) on this theme, and you can view the video clips of his interview by clicking on the titles at the bottom of the interactive below. The order of the video clips is left to right. There is also one other video that you can view, by clicking on the title in the upper right-hand corner of the interactive.

You may want to view and print an activity (coming soon) about telescopes and paraboloids; and also view and print our poster about telescopes and paraboloids.
