MUST(MUltiplexed Survey Telescope)

In the past decade, five Nobel prizes were awarded to the field of astronomy and astrophysics, and the whole field shows rapid development. At present, astronomy has entered a new era of multi-messengers and big data, our observations and understanding of the universe will achieve great leap forward in depth and breadth, and may reveal new laws of the universe. Under the leadership of Tsinghua University, we plan to build a MUltiplexed Survey Telescope (MUST) in mainland China. After its completion in about a decade, its spectroscopic survey capability will be more than 10 times higher than the current level. In combination with the future multi-wavelength imaging surveys, MUST is expected to make breakthroughs in many fields including the nature of dark matter and dark energy, gravitational wave cosmology, galaxy formation and evolution, enabling China to be a potential leader in the field of ground-based astronomical observations. In addition, MUST will derive great progress in advanced optics, precision machinery, high-performance detectors and other fields. We look forward to cooperating with you!
