Less than week until the UVa Astronomy Ironman begins… In the space of a week we’ll be visiting a few world-class telescopes, labs, and even doing some astronomical observing of our own. The list of places we’ll be visiting is quite impressive:
- Steward Observatory Mirror Lab
- Large Binocular Telescope (LBT)
- Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO)
- Very Large Array (VLA)
- Apache Point Observatory (APO)
It should be an awesome trip. I should have intermittent internet access and will attempt to post updates here. Pictures should be forthcoming. I have visited the VLA and KPNO before, so it’ll be great to go back. This time I’ll get actual tours and be able to see more stuff, which will be pretty sweet.
As usual, I’ll post a link if/when I have pictures online. Should be a great trip!
