The Desk of One Astronomer

May 9, 2009 -- From Dallim Park, a reader from US, who is affiliated with the site.

The website is based on the 100-inch Hooker telescope control panel desk at the Mount Wilson observatory. The Hooker telescope, completed in 1917, was up until 1948 the world’s largest telescope and played a major role in some of the most important advances made in the history of astronomy. By using photographs he took with this telescope, Edwin Hubble measured distances and velocities of galaxies. It led to the Expanding Universe, or Big Bang, theory.
