AME Student Helps Build Two Telescopes From the Ground Up

AroraFive undergraduate students from the University of Arizona's College of Engineering, including recent aerospace and mechanical engineering graduate Sameep Arora, helped build two 24-inch telescopes in seven months to track satellites and space junk. Starting June 20, after a first light ceremony at 6 p.m., one of the telescopes will run autonomously each night in the place where the old telescope once stood.
