MagAO-X Ships Out

Last Friday our shipping contractor (or at least our shipping contractor’s contractor) collected MagAO-X.

After it was loaded, Dr. Males said “I’m going home to not think about MagAO-X,” as is tradition.

MagAO-X now travels by ground to Miami, then by air to Santiago, then by ground again to the Las Campanas Observatory. I will follow its progress like last time.
