Telescopes and Instrumentation
Penn State is a partner in the MINERVA planet finding project, which is currently under operations at Mt. Hopkins, AZ. It consists of an array of four small-aperture robotic telescopes for high-resolution spectroscopy and Doppler velocimetry of bright, nearby, sun-like stars. Faculty member Jason Wright is leading Penn State's involvement in the facility.
