using the Hubble Telescope Angular resolution. The smallest detail that can be observed on the moon He's s is equal to our theater. So let's say we have ah two sports on the moon here. It's a distance s So this is the angle. Said, uh and this is the distance. So then the angular resolution off the Hubble telescope we have is that which is two point bed zero times 10 to the power of minus seven. Radiance. Radiance. So then, substituting this value and the distance from here to the moon which is our then we confined s is the distance from Artem Onis 3.8 for four times 10 to the power 80 meters times that there do we have Here is a two point edge. The room times 10 to the power minus seven. Radiance. Then, um, when applying these numbers gives us the distance, that can be I'll seen on the Moonies 110 meters
