The 200-inch telescope has performed much as Hale had hoped and predicted. Most of the programs he listed have made large advances. A very few have run into unforeseen difficulties. On the other hand, important breakthroughs have occurred along lines of which Hale had no inkling. If Hale were with us today I believe he would be content with the results of the great adventure he started.
