    This is the George Mason University Observatory, located on top of Research Hall. It's the second largest telescope on the east coast. When I attended George Mason University, I was our lead student weather forecaster and one of our weather stations was on the roof with the telescope. Multiple discoveries (exoplanets, etc) have been made using this low light telescope and whenever COVID isn't a thing anymore...the University hosts a night under the stars where you can attend a short lecture and then go up to the Observatory.

    Oops...rode to the Observatoire royal de Belgique (Royal Belgian Observatory), took a photo, and just realized that I also needed my bike in it.

    Benjamin Banneker Park in Arlington is named after Benjamin Banneker (1731-1806), a free Black mathematician, astronomer, and surveyor. The grandson of an enslaved African and a white indentured servant, Banneker had little formal education and was largely self-taught. He computed the lifecycle of seventeen-year cicadas, built a clock entirely out of wood while still a young man, published six annual farmer’s almanacs, and corresponded with Thomas Jefferson. He was also part of the initial team that surveyed the boundaries of DC, and the original SW-9 boundary stone is within the park.

    I suppose the Pit of Despair is STEM-related.
