OSU Department of Physics aims to resurrect Mendenhall Observatory

Mon, Nov 21, 2022

The Department of Physics is raising funds to restore Oklahoma State University’s Mendenhall Observatory, which is currently nonoperational and requires updating the telescope control system. Located just southwest of OSU’s Stillwater campus, the observatory houses the largest telescope in the state.

Around 100 kilometers above the Earth, outer space starts. And right on that edge — called the Kármán line — is where a growing interest in space tourism and a need for new research is beginning. On that edge is also where a team of researchers at Oklahoma State University is focusing to understand how radiation works in the atmosphere and its impact on technology and people. Dr. Eric Benton, a radiation physicist at OSU’s College of Arts and Sciences, is leading the research with his team at OSU and has a radiation detector set to fly on a Blue Origin rocket in 2023.
