The SAMI Survey has just observed its 700th galaxy! With 20 nights still to go this semester on the 4-metre Anglo-Australian Telescope at Siding Spring Observatory, Australia, we are well on our way to the final goal of 3,400 galaxies total.
The SAMI instrument was a collaborative development between the University of Sydney and the Australian Astronomical Observatory. The SAMI Galaxy Survey is supported by, and a key project of, the ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO).
