dc.description.abstract A Folded Astronomical Space Telescope (FAST) is a 2.4-m Hubble Space Telescope (HST) class of telescope that can be packaged in a 1.5-m diameter cylinder through use of a single ring of eight deployable segments. Because it has less mass and uses a much smaller booster to inject it into orbit, the cost is greatly reduced. en_US
