These include the IUCAA Girawali observatory, Southern African Large Telescope (the world’s largest mirror dimension), AstroSat, Aditya-L1 etc. More in work for the future include LIGO-India, Vera Rubin Observatory, Thirty Meter Telescope, Square Kilometer Array etc. Everyone is welcome to come find out about these through attractive models and posters made by students,” he added.
