Re-evaluation of the financial needs for the spring semester with the MAKE comitee

September - December 2020

Development of the Software part and studying the Hardware needs

  • The first semester of this project is going to consist mainly of data gathering, simulation and hardware needs estimations for the telescope that will be built during the spring semester
  • Travelling to different observatories to get some on site exxperience and gather more data

September 2020

First recruitment sessions

  • Finding enthoustastic students willing to contribute to the project

July 2020

Aproval of the project by the MAKE comitee.

May 2020

Filling up for the MAKE fund.

  • Constitution of the first team composed mainly of students from the physics section
  • Getting support from different EPFL laboratories in Basic sciences and Computer Science
