Next VLT Instrument Ready for the Astronomers
8. Februar 2000: The commissioning of the FORS2 multi-mode astronomical instrument at KUEYEN , the second FOcal Reducer/low dispersion Spectrograph at the ESO Very Large Telescope, was successfully finished today. This important work – that may be likened with the test driving of a new car model – took place during two periods, from October 22 to November 21, 1999, and January 22 to February 8, 2000.
