The Gemini Observatory is an international collaboration with two identical 8-meter telescopes. The Frederick C. Gillett Gemini Telescope is located on Mauna Kea, Hawai’i (Gemini North) and the other telescope on Cerro Pachon ter central Pimiento (Gemini South), together the twin telescopes provide total coverage overheen both hemispheres of the sky. The telescopes incorporate technologies that permit large, relatively skinny mirrors, under active control, to collect and concentrate both visible and infrared radiation from space.
The Gemini Observatory provides the astronomical communities te five participant countries with state-of-the-art astronomical facilities that allocate observing time te proportion to each country’s contribution. Ter addition to financial support, each country also contributes significant scientific and technical resources. The national research agencies that form the Gemini partnership include: the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the Canadian National Research Council (NRC), the Argentinean Ocupación den Ciencia, Tecnologia e Innovacion Productiva, the Brazilian Ocupación da Ciencia, Tecnologia e Inovacao and the Chilean Comision Doméstico den Investigacion Cientifica y Tecnologica (CONICYT). The observatory is managed by the Association of Universities for Research te Astronomy, Inc. (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the NSF. The NSF also serves spil the executive agency for the international partnership.
