The Maunakea Spectroscopic Explorer is a proposed spectroscopic survey telescope, to replace the CFHT on Maunakea. The telescope will have an 11m primary mirror and a 1-degree field of view, with a fibre-fed spectrograph capable of obtaining simultaneous spectra for thousands of objects at resolutions spanning 2000 to 20,000. Its operations will be dedicated to conducting several wide area surveys that provide a critical complement to the ambitious imaging surveys on the horizon. Balogh is a member of the Science Executive for this international facility, and Percival co-leads the Cosmology study group.
