"The start of construction of the GMT is a major milestone for our program, and we are excited by the opportunity to build instruments for the first of the next generation of telescopes. The spectrograph will enable key capabilities like the study of the most distant galaxies and stars in the universe, determination of the atmospheric composition of exoplanets, and investigations into the nature of dark matter and dark energy. At this point, we are focused on creating the best instrument possible."
