Hear from Scott Kardel, the public affairs coordinator for the Palomar Observatory, a world-class center for astronomical research that is owned and operated by the California Institute of Technology. There are five telescopes used at Palomar, including the 200-inch Hale Telescope (the "Big Eye"), for which Corning Glass Works created the mirror in 1934 (on its second attempt; the unsuccessful first attempt stands in the center of the Museum's Innovation Center). http://www.cmog.org/
