The VLTI K-band beam combiner instrument GRAVITY successfully completed its second run of Science Verification (SV) in September 2016 (10–18 September). Most programmes have been completed or mostly completed (i.e., the SV team assessed that sufficient data were collected to reach the proposal goal).

The GRAVITY SV raw data are publicly available. The ESO SV team is currently actively working with the consortium to release a version 1.0 of the GRAVITY pipeline, as well as reduced SV data. The status of the SV runs and links to raw data can be found here.
