On may perhaps 18-21, 2004, the Max-Planck-Society’s Harnack-Haus in Dahlem, Berlin hosted the foreign symposium "Exploring the Cosmic Frontier: Astrophysical tools for the twenty first Century". The symposium was once devoted to exploring the complementarity and synergies among diverse branches of astrophysical learn, by way of proposing and discussing the basic clinical difficulties that may be addressed within the following couple of a long time.

1 arcsec or better and all will provide unique views of the universe. 1 Faint Radio Source Population At the high radio flux levels in catalogues such as 3C, (Fig. 2), the radio sky is dominated by radio galaxies and quasars which are so bright in the radio that they can be seen at any redshift. Extragalactic continuum radio astronomy was very much the domain of the AGN and observations of the same objects at Radio Astronomy Facilities 9 S5/2n (S) (Jy3/2 sr−1) other wavebands was often difficult because they were so faint.

An analysis by Weinreb & D’Addario [5] shows that the optimum centimetre telescope in 2010 will be an array of 8m dishes. There is an equivalence between focal plane arrays and aperture plane arrays. For a given number of receiver elements these two approaches are exactly equivalent for contiguous aperture. However, achieving the maximum compactness without either shadowing or geometric projection losses is only possible if the aperture plane array is on a tilting platform. For unfilled aperture arrays the synthesis approach trades resolution for brightness sensitivity.

Several projects and studies are being prepared for the second decade of the third millennium, both in space and on the ground. Here we review the status of optical / near infrared facilities now on the drawing board, with particular emphasis on the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), and the OverWhelmingly Large 100m telescope (OWL).
