Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: DESI at Kitt Peak Has Mapped More Galaxies Than All Previous 3D Surveys Combined

Newswise imageThe Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) has cataloged more galaxies than all other previous three-dimensional redshift surveys combined, measuring 7.5 million galaxies in only seven months since beginning science operations. The US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory leads DESI, which is installed at Kitt Peak National Observatory, a program of NSF's NOIRLab, on the Nicholas U.
