Hawai‘i is Earth’s connecting point to the rest of the Universe. The summit of Mauna Kea on the Island of Hawai‘i hosts the world’s largest astronomical observatory, with telescopes operated by astronomers from eleven countries. The combined light-gathering power of the telescopes on Mauna Kea is … 60x greater than that of the Hubble Space Telescope.
