The NRT team are pleased to announce an upcoming online science collaboration meeting:
The New Robotic Telescope (NRT) will be the world's largest robotic telescope, providing a rapid response view of our transient skies in 2026 and beyond. With a 4m mirror and a rapid slew speed of 30 seconds between trigger and data acquisition, the NRT will revolutionise survey, satellite and GW follow-up.
The New Robotic Telescope partners (IAC, LJMU and University of Oviedo) invite Italian astronomers to attend a science meeting on 17th March at 9am - 12pm UK/Canary Island time, 10am - 1pm Italy/ mainland Spain time via zoom (the meeting will be recorded and made available to all registered attendees shortly after the event). The purpose of this meeting is to provide an update on the project progress, discuss the NRT science case and operations model and encourage the Italian astronomy community to be actively involved in the project. We want to spread the project as widely as possible and particularly encourage Italian researchers within time domain astronomy to include the NRT in their future research plans.
The 3 hour meeting is designed to be compact but informative, with presentations from the project team and discussions with Italian astronomers. We encourage all interested parties to register, whether you can attend the live session or not, as the recording will be sent to registered individuals only.
