Claim to Fame: On the isolated big island of Hawaii sit Keck’s twin telescopes, each 10 meters (about 33 ft) in diameter. When they were built in the early 1990s they became the largest such spans in the world. Keck’s advanced adaptive optics paved the way for computer-driven mirrors that can be adjusted multiple times per second to make up for atmospheric disturbances in real time.
Fun Fact:Though the Keck Observatory is more than 15 years old, it has essentially the same design and setup of the more monstrous telescopes under planning or construction, says Caltech’s Chuck Steidel, one of the designers of the proposed Thirty Meter Telescope. “Keck Observatory is the prototype of the next generation,” he told PM.

The term Gladiator means Swordsman or sword wielder , it is derived from the word Gladius which is what the typical Roman long sword of the time was called.
Gladiators were professional soldiers who fought to bring entertainment to the masses. Most gladiators were either deserters from the Roman army, slaves who were bought for the purpose or criminals who were given the alternative to fight in the arena or be put to death, A fair choice !
Perhaps the most famous gladiator was a man by the name of Spartacus, who was originally a deserter from the Roman army.
Gladiators becomes inspiration for many great movies. Ridley Scott’s Gladiators(2000) was a blockbuster. Here I have compiled 15 Best Pictures of Gladiators.
