Lucien Hervé Lucien Hervé (born László Elkán on 7 August 1910 in Hungary, died 26 June 2007 in Paris) was a French photographer of Hungarian origin. He was notable for his architectural photography, beginning with his work for Le Corbusier. "Lucien Hervé is one of the rare photographers to combine a humanist outlook with an architect's eye. His characteristic style of cropped frames, plunging or oblique views, and pared-down compositions tending toward abstraction distinguish his work from that of his contemporaries."

Sharpest Views of the Cosmos Ever A close-up of the central region of the Orion nebula, taken with the Schulman Telescope at the Mount Lemmon SkyCenter. Credit: Adam Block/UA SkyCenter) Astronomers have built a new astro-camera that, when fitted onto the largest observatories on Earth, can snap photos of the universe twice as sharp as the famed Hubble Space Telescope. With the newly developed technology, giant telescopes can reach their theoretical limits of resolution in visible light —something that was just not possible, until now, because of atmospheric turbulence causing blurry visible light images. (Related: The Largest Baby Star, Ever?) “It was very exciting to see this new camera make the night sky look sharper than has ever before been possible,” said Laird Close, the project’s principal scientist at the University of Arizona in a press statement. “As a result, we can see the visible sky more clearly than ever before,” said Close.
