Gemini-South telescope back in business after earthquake

The Gemini-S telescope survived an 8.4 magnitude earthquake the previous week. Following an intense week of detailed inspections and testing of the infrastructure, the telescope, and the instruments were released for normal use. During the inspection some components were found broken or displaced, but all could be repaired and adjusted and no major damage was sustained. 

On-sky tests over the weekend showed that all is well and science observations have resumed.
