The University of Chicago is home to many of the most exciting projects in astrophysics and cosmology. Each of these projects has the potential individually to revolutionize our understanding of the cosmos. Together, they may well provide us with a consistent view of how structure in the universe formed. When considering these along with all the other astrophysics initiatives at UChicago, one is led to the inescapable conclusion that Chicago truly is the Center of the Universe. Projects include:
GMT), Chicago is a Founding Member of the Giant Magellan Telescope.
Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST).
MT), Chicago has access to time on the twin Magellan telescopes.
MAROON-X: M dwarf Advanced Radial velocity Observer Of Neighboring eXoplanets. We are building a new instrument with the capability to detect Earth-size planets in the habitable zones of mid- to late-M dwarfs using the radial velocity method.
SPT), Chicago leads the South Pole Telescope project.
