Gran Telescopio CANARIAS: A partnership for discovery


Since 2002 scientists who are passionate about the potential of the GTC and its instruments have been meeting to put together its work programme and decide what the first experiments will be when it enters service.

This was the third meeting, the "Third International Congress on Science with the Gran Telescopio CANARIAS (GTC): First Light Science with the GTC." It was organised by the University of Florida Department of Astronomy and took place during the last week in June, at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Miami (Florida, U.S.A).

The University of Florida organised an official presentation aimed at promoting the GTC project to people from Spain, Mexico and the United States. Around 250 people attended the event, which began with a video diary showing the different stages that the GTC has passed through and its current stage of development.
