W. M. Keck Observatory - The Impossible Telescope, Big Island Hawaii by Ethan Tweedie

This is such an amazing film about an amazing team of some of the brightest individuals ever assembled to create the W.M. Keck Observatory here on the Big Island of Hawaii. 

W.M. Keck Observatory writes: “W. M. Keck Observatory takes a journey through time, honoring the past, celebrating the present, and inspiring the future. This film highlights the vision, mission, and evolution of the most scientifically impactful optical/infrared twin telescopes on Earth, as told through the lenses of the people who are part of the Observatory’s history and experienced the trials, tribulations, and successes of building what was once called ‘The Impossible Telescope.’”

I am so proud to have met so many of these amazing people and had the opportunity to work with them capturing images for the Observatory!  Mahalo Andrea Ghez, Andrew Cooper, Ron Laub, Taft Armandroff,  Barbara Schaefer, Hilton A.
