Observatories from around the world shared updates, both in-space and on-land, on groups’ research, achievements, construction and operational project progress, and visioning for further advancements yet to come.
Plenaries provided the basis for inspiring conversations that lasted throughout the five-day conference.
A packed room showed the support for gender and diversity inclusion in a rapidly advancing industry that extends across the globe.
