Abstract:
UNC astronomers have spent the last eighteen years developing a high-tech telescope called SOAR. They recently launched SOAR into the skies above the Chilean Andes, where it will capture the highest quality images of any observatory in the world. SOAR is the most versatile and efficient telescope of its kind, and makes UNC a key player on the global astronomical scene.
