V okviru 211. doktorskega seminarja Grajeno okolje bo imel(-a) dr. Tina Marolt Čebašek, Liverpool John Moores University, Velika Britanija predavanje z naslovom:

Building on the success of the Liverpool Telescope (LT), construction and design of the New Robotic Telescope (NRT) observatory


The New Robotic Telescope (NRT) will supersede the original Liverpool Telescope (LT), which is a fully robotic telescope owned and operated by the Astrophysics Research Institute of Liverpool John Moors University (ARI/LJMU). The diameter of primary mirror of LT with 2 m will be increased to 4 m. This is to be fully robotic with autonomous operation, designed for fast follow-up by retrieving data within 30 seconds, with the overall goal to retrieve more light. It will be operational in 2025. The total cost of the project is estimated at £25 million.
The focus of this lecture will be on construction and design of superstructure – enclosure and substructure – foundation including the pier of the existing LT with applications to the NRT.
