Scientists from the UNAM´s Geophysics Institute installed the super telescope at an altitude of 4,600 meters.

The telescope is "unique in the world because it is the largest and most precise detector of solar particles," the UNAM said in a statement.

The apparatus was donated by the Solar-Terrestrial Environment Laboratory of the University of Nagoya, Geophysics Institute researcher Jose Francisco Valdes Galicia said.

The telescope can "detect a complete shower of cosmic rays," Valdes said.
