November 9, 2017 - At CAID Industries in Tucson, the Surrogate Mirror has now been mounted to the Primary/Tertiary Mirror (M1M3) Cell. This is a significant milestone for both the Surrogate Mirror and for the M1M3 Cell, allowing the start of the next phase of integration: installing the figure actuators.
