MCAT – “Engineering First Light”

The construction of NASA’s optical telescope facility for MCAT (Meter Class Autonomous Telescope) is complete. The team declared “engineering first light” using the telescope manually on June 2 but still have work to do before declaring “science first light” which will occur later this month. MCAT is a dedicated optical telescope for orbital debris monitoring. This panorama provides a great view of #MCAT on Ascension Island. MCAT Panorama 1
