The history of 20th century astronomy is inextricably linked to the Carnegie Observatories. From the revelation of the universe’s expansion to the discovery of dark energy, Carnegie Observatories scientists have transformed humankind’s understanding of the cosmos.

Carbon plays an unparalleled role in our lives: as the element of life, as the basis of most of society’s energy, as the backbone of most new materials, and as the central focus in efforts to understand Earth’s variable and uncertain climate.

Yet in spite of carbon’s importance, scientists remain largely ignorant of the physical, chemical, and biological behavior of many of Earth’s. Since its foundation inthe Mount Wilson Observatory has been at the centre of the development of astrophysics. Perched atop a mountain wilderness, two mammoth solar tower telescopes and the and inch behemoth night-time reflectors were all the largest in the world.

Research has centred around two main themes - the evolution of stars and the development of the universe. Upon completion in Hale made a gift of the buildings, grounds, and equipment to the Carnegie Institution of Washington.

The Solar Lab was to become a permanent branch of the Mount Wilson Observatory. Hale spent his retirement years at his lab studying the sun with instruments of his design.
