The Observatory contains many of the world’s largest telescopes. You can see constellations like Cancer, Hydra, and Ursa Major with incredible visibility.
One of Everett’s favourite books was Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. His father said that “Everett may have identified with the book’s Captain Nemo, who hated civilization, explored unknown lands in the ocean, and invented a new language—just as Everett was exploring unknown deserts and learning the new language of Navajo” (Berger 7-8). Everett had carved ““NEMO,” with “Nov 1934”” (Lyon 89), into a cave stone. According to him, he was the Captain Nemo born in Nov 1934. Both explorers were fond of books and utilized them to satisfy their imaginations.
Hawaii island is also to Mauna Kea.

This is 1,116 meters (3,661 feet, 0.7 miles) taller than Mount Everest and roughly the same height in the atmosphere where commercial airplanes fly” (Mauna Kea para 3). Though Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the world most of its height is under water.
March (2005), was inspired by her fondness for Louisa May Alcott 's Little Women, which her mother had given her. To connect that memorable reading experience to her new status in 2002 as an American citizen, she researched the Civil War historical setting of Little Women and decided to create a chronicle of wartime service for the "absent father" of the March girls. Some aspects of this chronicle were informed by the life and philosophical writings of the Alcott family patriarch, Amos Bronson Alcott, whom she profiled under the title "Orpheus at the Plow", in the 10 January 2005 issue of The New Yorker, a month before March was published. The parallel novel was generally well received by the critics. It was selected in December 2005 selection by the Washington Post as one of the five best fiction works published that year.
