MSE Attends SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation Meeting: 17-22 July 2022
Representatives from the MSE Project Office attended the SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation meeting in Montréal on 17-22 July 2022. MSE and CFHT leadership presented many talks and posters with updates on the project, hosted an open house and All-Hands event, and also staffed a well-attended booth in the exhibition hall where we answered visitors’ questions and handed out swag and brochures with information about recent developments in the project. At the SPIE meeting, attendees were particularly enthusiastic about Sam Barden’s new quad mirror telescope design as well as Andy Sheinis’ presentation of the new Pathfinder concept.
Special thanks to Mary Beth Laychak and Laurie Dale for organizing MSE’s presence at the meeting and to Sam Barden, Kevin Ho, Jen Marshall, Andy Sheinis, Barbara Small, Christian Surace, and Kei Szeto, and our many other partners who were in attendance, for representing the project.
