In the article it is shown how lightweight a primary mirror of a space telescope can be made by using new material silicon carbide. The article includes theoretical calculations made with the help of software. The main aim of calculations is to get lightweight mirror with small optical surface deflections. The mirror diameter is more than 1 m.
