W. M. Keck Observatory invites you to a virtual screening of “Beyond the Impossible.”
This short film is a sequel to “The Impossible Telescope,” a documentary released last year commemorating the legacy of Jerry Nelson, known as the “Father of the Keck Observatory Telescopes,” who pioneered the 10-meter segmented design of the primary mirrors that make up the heart of our Keck I and Keck II telescopes.
This new documentary picks up the story after the twin telescopes were built, and chronicles the exciting discoveries that catapulted Keck Observatory into becoming the most scientifically impactful optical/infrared ground-based observatory on the planet. Please join us!
