Cosmic Web Imager

Keck Observatory raises funds to support game-changing innovations in astronomical research: our new MAGIQ HIRES guider system to better detect earth-like planets, MOSFIRE’s multiplex spectroscopy for unparalleled capabilities in measuring distant galaxies and the early Universe, and most recently progressive enhancements to our world leading laser guide star adaptive optics systems. Next in development is the Cosmic Web Imager, a highly flexible instrument being designed to support a cornucopia of science investigations that focus on complex extended objects in the night sky, including mapping the architecture of large scale structure in the Universe.  The Cosmic Web Imager’s uniqueness and versatility, paired with the most superb Telescope and site on Earth, ensure that it will make profound new discoveries about the cosmos for decades to come.
