Yale pays $12M to use Mauna Kea telescopes

UH lobbyists like to say that “viewing time” on Mauna Kea isn’t a cash transaction and development of Mauna Kea isn’t about about money… but Yale is paying $12 million for 15 nights/year of viewing time on one Mauna Kea telescope for the next ten years. That’s $12 million for 150 nights = $80,000 per night.

Making a $775/night room at the Four Seasons Hualalai look like a steal.
