Roman Space Telescope Simulated_Image A composite figure shows the region of Andromeda covered by the Roman Space Telescope simulation. It would be able to image the main body of Andromeda in just a few pointings, surveying the galaxy nearly 1500 times faster than Hubble.

galaxy_cluster A candidate for a galaxy at z≈9.6, magnified by a factor of ~15 by the foreground cluster MACSJ1149+2223 (z ≈ 0.54). The object was found in an HST survey using the WFC3IR camera (Zheng et al. 2012). This young object is seen when the universe is only about 500 million years old.
 microlensing search area The area around another star that the Roman Space Telescope will search (in blue) for exoplanets compared to Kepler's search area.
Roman Space Telescope vs hubble. The field of view of the Hubble Space telescope compared to the Roman Space Telescope.
 microlensing technique The Roman Space Telescope will search for exoplanets using the microlensing technique displayed above. As a lens star moves across the line of sight of the telescope, an exoplanet will magnify a background star's signal.
 Forward Optical Assembly The main pieces of Roman's Forward Optical Assembly.
