Installed in 1962, the McMath-Pierce Solar Telescope is the greatest solar instrument in the world. Named in honor of the famous astronomers Robert McMath and Keith Pierce, it was designed by Myron Goldsmith. Stretching to an approximate 110 feet (33.52 meters), this solar telescope has been responsible for many discoveries, one of which includes the presence of water vapor on the great star. Pride of the National Solar Observatory in Tucson, it still remains a mecca for astronomy enthusiasts.
