QUIT HORSING AROUND How do you clean one of the largest mirrors in the world? Very carefully. Here optical technicians clean the Gemini North Telescope (which is located at 4,000m (14,000ft) on Mauna Kea, Hawai'i). The 8m (26ft) mirror needs regular cleaning, a process with over 500 steps and a crew of more than 20. First the 24-ton mirror must be dismounted from the telescope (over 5 stories into the basement), then it must be mounted on a wash frame, all before the actual cleaning. After much experimentation, it was found that the most effective way to wash the mirror surface was with natural sponges soaked in horse shampoo. The soap does not leave any residue, and isn't abrasive enough to cause damage to the multi-million dollar mirror. This method was originally developed at the Gemini South Observatory, in Chile. Technicians from Chile travel to Hawai'i in order to participate in cleaning their sister telescope. -CJ Credit: Gemini Observatory/Kirk Pu'uohau-Pummill Source: http://www.gemini.edu/node/60
