James Roger Prior Angel is an astronomer who conceives and builds new devices for both ground-based and space-borne observation. Angel created a new method of casting glass that allows construction of very large mirrors for ground-based telescopes, a method now being used in the formation of the world's largest single-mirror telescope. Angel is now involved in developing space-borne interferometric instrumentation potentially capable of direct detection of Earth-like planets around other stars. Angel is a professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona at the Steward Observatory, and his articles have appeared in Nature, Astrophysical Journal and other publications. Angel received his B.A. (1963) from Oxford University, his M.A. (1966) from the California Institute of Technology, and his D.Phil. (1967) from Oxford University.
