Jan 19 Earthquake recovery at Gemini South

January 24th, 2019

The Gemini South day crew is working tirelessly to get the telescope back on sky, after the intense 6.7-magnitude earthquake that struck the area of La Serena, Chile on Saturday night, January 19th.
Most major systems have checked out, and the hydraulic bearing system is currently being assessed with a goal of being back on sky by the end of this week.
