Grey Tan was pursuing his degree in Social Sciences in NUS when he founded TinyMOS with classmates Ashprit Singh Arora and Chia Lih Wei. The idea originated from his cross faculty activities of Astronomy and New Product development.
His lifelong interest in photography and technologies helped him come up with ideas to improve astronomy imaging products; which were once niche products that required in-depth photography and astronomy knowledge to operate.
With Tiny1, TinyMOS’s first product, he hopes to put astronomy photography within reach of the everyday person - to inspire appreciation of nature and our lucky status of occupying the only habitable ball of dirt in the known universe, Earth.
Tiny1 has a social goal of mapping light pollution levels, to advocate for the preservation of dark skies for future generations to experience the cosmic landscape.
