Could a perfect mirror/s be made to reflect one side of the Earth from the edge of the solar system and viewed with an optical or radio telescope that is in orbit?
The targeting mirrors and telescope are in orbit around Earth are aimed away at reflected Earth through the mirrors in synchronous orbit around the sun (shown in the picture below). The mirror in orbit on the telescope can be moved to see different points of reflected Earth to see about 30 seconds into the past.
In the comments: What if the Hubble was modified and aimed at the Earth? You can see stuff on a table like a blurry hammer and people.. The fact that you could see anything at all on a table is impressive. Therefore, could use to look back in time in conjunction with gunfire locators to get a visual on the exact location to get the color make and model of a car or outline of a person?
I understand the square inverse law and the further away the telescope and mirrors are from Earth the blurrier. The mirror would have to be huge or the viewing area very small. With technology, we could scan of an area on the mirror in which the Earth is reflected with a narrow aperture to take a panoramic picture?
I understand that radio telescopes do not work the same as optical telescopes, but could radio and other types of telescopes see objects in black or white on Earth farther away?
