UNBLINKING EYES aim high atop Mauna Kea, home of the Keck and eight other optical, infrared, and radio telescopes. Four more observatories will soon be in operation. New technology, which enables ground-based telescopes to rival orbiting observatories, is aided by Mauna Kea's elevation of nearly 14,000 feet. The site is managed by the University of Hawaii's Institute for Astronomy.
