Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telesscope (LCOGT) :
The Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope (
is a privately supported
planned network of medium-sized (2m) telescopes, longitudinally located to
"keep you in the dark all of the time". Since it will be able to perform
continuous optical observations unbroken by the usual day/night cycle,
LCOGT will have a capability to do astronomy in the 24+ hour time-domain,
a function that does not currently exist in a manner dedicated to doing
time-varying astronomy. By having such telescopes distributed in northern-
and southern-hemisphere sets of nearly-identical facilities, LCOGT will
also have a uniqe ability to perform target-of-opportunity observing.
Finally, LCOGT will have sufficient telescope time to address a small
number of key science questions that require large observing resources. A
major educational outreach effort will accompany LCOGT science, building
upon the educational work started by the Dill Faulkes Foundation.
