Every night, astronomers use a new generation of giant telescopes at observatories around the world to study phenomena at the forefront of science. By focusing on the history of the Gemini Observatory - twin 8-metre telescopes located on mountain peaks in Hawaii and Chile - "Giant Telescopes" tells the story behind the planning and construction of modern scientific tools, offering a detailed view of the technological and political transformation of astronomy in the post-war era.
