Brooks School ~ Stargazing Returns to Brooks, 13 May 2013 [cached]
Now, thanks to the work of faculty member Don Cameron and Merrimack professor Ralph Pass, the Brooks community can once again enjoy a true hidden gem on campus.
As part the 2012 Winter Term course, Cameron hosted Merrimack College Adjunct Professor Ralph Pass, who was a member of the NASA team for every manned Apollo mission.
Pass was happy to offer support and advice on getting the telescope up-and-running. Eventually, he even offered some of the parts the telescope needed - a huge help to Brooks. Because of his work in the industry, Pass was able to secure items such as a new handset for the scope.
"Ralph wrote his own computer program that communicated with the telescope.
They start to get an idea of size, a sense of how complicated it is, and how vast it is," said Pass.
