Welcome to the ROTSE project.
The primary goal of the ROTSE project is to achieve observations in optical light of Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRB). To carry out our program, the small but powerful ROTSE telescopes operate at sites around the world. Explore ROTSE operations, discoveries, and research in these pages.
