The Dark Energy Spectroscopic
Instrument (DESI) has recently received formal approval from the US
Department of Energy to move forward to the construction phase. DESI
is a 3-D sky mapping project and will measure spectra of 35 million galaxies to
provide new clues about Dark Energy. Installation of the project is set to
begin next year at the Mayall 4-meter telescope in Kitt Peak National
Observatory, Arizona, with observations starting up in January 2019.
