Default Re: Thirty Meter Telescope Proposal For Mauna Kea

In Chile it also means you have to live in the cold, barren Atacoma desert many miles from anywhere. Not the place to be if you like "green space" because nothing grows there. I'd rather live in Hawaii myself.

"Atacama is one of the driest places on Earth,[4] and is virtually sterile because it is blocked from moisture on both sides by the Andes mountains and by the Chilean Coast Range."
