Wheeling Jesuit University/Buildings/Fed Acker Huang Observatory
“I have a feeling that this is something I should not be seeing.”
The Fed Acker Huang Observatory was set up in 1999 by Immortal Jesuit Emperor Fed Acker Huang for the observation of heavenly bodies. It is located in Wheeling Jesuit University's mysterious and wonderful CET building.
"This university needs this observatory, and I need your support in getting it built. Of course, I'm going to build it anyway, whether you agree with me or not, but you're probably going to want to agree with me if you like having use of all four limbs (unless you've already lost a few limbs to the Secret Police...oh! What was I saying? Oh yeah). We don't have an observatory, so I'm building one, end of story. Kapeesh?"
Three months later, the Immortal Emperor released a second statement:
"The Board of Governors has unanimously agreed with my proposal, so we're going to go ahead and start construction of the observatory, which will be named after me, of course. Hoo-rah! Oh, by the way, a couple of members of the Board of Governors have gone on a little 'vacation'. I don't think we'll be seeing them again."
The observatory was completed in July, 1999, adjacent to the president's office in the CET. However, students are currently forbidden from using the facility until it has been completely checked by "relevant safety organisations".
The Fed Acker Huang Observatory is conservative in its design, featuring a large telescope whose primary mirror is 30 m in diameter. When questioned as to why the telescope is continually pointed at Kirby/Sara Tracy, WJU's all-female dorm, Huang replied that a giant secondary mirror in the dorm's courtyard further aids the telescope's clarity and range. While this makes no sense to any respectable physicist, any further questioning into the matter usually results in an unexplainable and grisly death.
