Paper Abstract

The paper briefly reviews the scientific rational and scientific systems approach used by the Gemini 8M Telescopes Project in the design, construction and operations of the Gemini telescopes. We report on the progress of the telescopes on both Mauna Kea, Hawaii and Cerro Pachon Chile, give an updated schedule and describe some of the science operations concepts and planning that is going into the Gemini Observatory. In addition, at the end of this paper we give a full bibliography of Gemini papers presented at the numerous sessions of the 1998 SPIE meeting in Kona.
