The goal of this project is to build a support structure for mirrors similar to those that will be used in the Constellation X mission.

Since the mirrors must be precisely and accurately alligned in order to focus weak x-ray signals, such a support structure must minimize the deformation of the mirror. This project seeks to design a support that will result in mirror deformations of no more than 50nm.
