Update on the Gemini High-resolution Optical Spectrograph (GHOS)

August 20th, 2013
Gemini has been negotiating with the Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO) for the continued design and construction of the Gemini High-resolution Optical Spectroraph (GHOS).  The AAO has, in turn, been negotiating with KiwiStar, a subcontractor working on the GHOS spectrograph.  Late in July, the Board of KiwiStar's parent company, Callaghan Innovation, met to review and hopefully approve the final contract so GHOS could get underway.
