Mauna Kea, Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii; a Submillimeter Radio Telescope located at the summit of the Mauna Kea Observatories (MKO), with the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, Gemini Northern 8-meter Telescope, UH 0.6-meter Telescope and the United Kingdom Infrared Telescopes in the background, currently there are 13 independent multi-national astronomical research facilities located on the summit. Mauna Kea's altitude and isolation in the middle of the Pacific ocean make it an ideal location for astronomical observation.
