2022B Virtual Proposal Planning Workshop

The Green Bank Telescope (GBT) Proposal Planning Workshop will provide the essential skills and knowledge needed to propose for telescope time on the worlds largest steerable telescope. This workshop is intended for new observers to learn how to propose to use this instrument as well as returning observers interested in learning about the most up-to-date capabilities of the GBT. We will be hosting a virtual workshop on Thursday, January 20th (2-5 pm ET) via zoom and an office hour on Wednesday, January 26th (9-10 am ET) primarily for those who cannot make the January 20th workshop to ask questions.
