Bon Voyage (Buen Viaje) M1M3!
March 26, 2019
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) mirror M1M3 has arrived in Houston and is now waiting for the ship that will take it to Chile. The trip from Tucson to Houston was uneventful for the mirror, but sparked a lot of curiosity from motorists who had to make way for this very oversized load! More photos, provided by transport company Precision Heavy Haul, Inc., are available in the LSST Gallery here.
