Impressive Use of the Word "Cactus"
It’s a telescope, an impressive looking structure indeed. Or more specifically, a CACTUS telescope. And it’s right around the corner in Davis. I may have to go visit this, when the weather is nicer of course.
The observational program of CACTUS included Pulsars/Supernova Remnants (Crab, Geminga), Active Galactic Nuclei (Mk421, Mk501) and the Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy (Draco).
Why doesn’t anyone ever think to give me one of these cactus telescopes for christmas? I would be ever so appreciative. I might even name a newly discovered crab supernova after you in return!
