Meeting at the Chilean Consulate, Vancouver

Today I met with Alejandro Gibbons the Consul for Chile here in Vancouver. We discussed the impact of the new Gemini Planet Imager (G-Pie ) instrument at the Gemini observatory, which famed Canadian astronomer, Jaymie Matthews enthused about in my Skype interview with him. The G-Pie, partly built by Canadian scientists allows scientists to directly image solar systems beyond our own. Many scientists are keen to get in the queue to make observations with the new system.
