NEID has shipped for WIYN!

This morning the first truck left from Penn State for WIYN university. This truck along with NEID also contains the etalon and the calibration bench for the system. It was surely a nerve wracking few bits when the entire instrument was suspended off the fork-lift while it was being put into the truck.

The truck will be getting to WIYN, Kitt Peak on Monday when the team members will unload it. The second truck, will leave Penn State on November 1st containing the Laser Frequency Comb.

Stay tuned for more commissioning updates!
