Once again this year, we will be offering personalized help at the NOIRLab booth in the National Science Foundation pavilion (#507) in the Exhibit Hall of the 239th meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you have Gemini data, an active observing program, or even a vague idea of a project, you can visit the booth any time during Exhibit Hall hours to chat with our staff!

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding the first on-line Gemini Science Meeting this August to bridge the gap to the in-person Gemini Science Meeting in Seoul, which has now been postponed to August 2022.
You can now visit the meeting page on the NOIRLab site.
Scientists and science communication professionals from a collection of institutes, including NSF, NSF’s NOIRLab, NASA, AURA, and various European observatories, have published a white paper detailing best practices for science communication on behalf of large, multi-institutional collaborations.
The Gemini Card Game (GCG) can now be played on the site Tabletopia! https://tabletopia.com/games/the-gemini-observatory-card-game
You do not need to own a card deck anymore, you can play with anyone, anywhere, and you can enjoy the improved gameplay, with a new game board and automated set-up.

Now that most of us have to work from home and find creative things to do on week-ends, Gemini is giving you the opportunity to download the Gemini Card Game! If you did not have the chance to get yours already, you can now download the deck, print it, read the rule book and play!
As you can see, the Gemini website looks quite different! Over the last few years, we have worked on a complete remodeling of the site structure. The ultimate goal is to make the most relevant information more visible, and more accessible. By the way, try to see it on your tablet or your phone!
