Undergraduate students at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo will soon have access to the Maunakea telescopes, an amazing opportunity to work with the world’s premiere telescopes located on the world’s best site for astronomy.

“This agreement is the result of hard work and close collaboration between UH Hilo and UH Mānoa astronomers,” said UH Hilo Physics and Astronomy Department Chair Marianne Takamiya. “It opens the unique possibility for UHHilo astronomy majors to learn how to use the largest and most powerful telescopes in the world.”

UH Hilo’s use of the telescopes will be increased over a ten year period, receiving 6 nights a year for the first five years, 10 nights a year for the second five years and then 16 nights every year thereafter.

“We will now be offering a program quite unique, where students can learn astronomical techniques and scientific research using an ensemble of small and medium aperture telescopes and the formidable facilities on Maunakea,” said Pierre Martin, the UH Hilo astronomy and observatory director. “A stronger astronomy program at UH Hilo also means more educational opportunities for the local communities and keiki, a prominent core value of our mission.”
