    January 18, 2005: The kickoff meeting of the preliminary design phase has been held at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France (one of the two CRAL locations). A large fraction (49 people) of the scientists and engineers from the six consortium institutes and ESO attended this meeting. Major feasibility points and open actions left after the Conceptual Design Review were discussed. This meeting marked the official start of the preliminary design phase, which will end in September 2006 by the preliminary design review. During this period all MUSE subsystems will be designed to achieve the required specifications. Some breadboards of critical system, such as the image slicers, will also be manufactured and tested.
