The Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer

Front view of the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE).

The two electronics cabinets (one for the cooling system, the other for the fore-optics and calibration unit mechanism and lamps) can be seen in the foreground. The front part of the fore-optics is visible at the top of the main structure. It faces an optical system which simulates the Very Large Telescope (VLT) light beam.

More can be read about MUSE in issue 147 of the Messenger.
