2022 marks the end of an era for APEX as the OSO / ESO / MPIfR fruitful partnership also ends with the year.
It has been an incredible ride together, with outstanding scientific accomplishments, always pushing technology boundaries with state-of-the-art instrumentation.
However, APEX does not end here, but changes. We enter into a different era, with a different form of operation, now under the lead of the MPIfR.
Some say that “something has to change so that everything can stay the same”, and somehow we have been doing so for years. We have been in constant evolution, constant improvement, always trying new things and finding new ways; That has always been the “APEX way”.
In the end, APEX is like the “Hotel California” … you can always checkout, but you never leave… We are excited about the future, and look forward for what comes…
