Gemini Observatory: A Tale of Twin Telescopes
Teo Močnik (Gemini Telescopes)
The Gemini Observatory consists of twin 8.1 m telescopes, located on Mauna Kea in Hawaii and on the mountain of Cerro Pachon in Chile. We will virtually visit one of the telescopes and its control room, inspect our arsenal of optical and infrared instruments, take a peek at the backstage operations of the queue-based observatory, and walk through the gallery of some of our science highlights. Best of all, Slovenian astronomers can apply for Gemini observing time too!
