Two weeks at Greenland Telescope
Dr. Do-Young Byun (KVN)
Greenland telescope (GLT) is one of key stations of Event Horizon Telescope aiming at blackhole shadow imaging. Construction of GLT at Thule site was finished and commissioning operation started around last December.
Immediate goal of the commissioning is to make GLT ready for EHT campaign observations in this April. I visited GLT to support the commissioning and evaluation of VLBI backend. Operating telescope at polar area has several technical issues. In my talk, I report my experience and learning from GLT showing pictures and movies of Greenland.
