Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: Mauna Kea is considered a sacred site for Native Hawaiians and they want to build a telescope there... It's supposed to be one of the best telescopes, and Mauna Kea is a really great place to have a telescope due to its location and little light pollution. But, it's considered a sacred space for Hawaiian people so that's kind of the conflict.
