The Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) is a long-baseline optical/infrared interferometer under construction at a high-altitude site in New Mexico, with a broad science mission including near-Earth, galactic and extragalactic targets. I will discuss a number of example science programmes with the interferometer and briefly indicate how the design of the MROI makes it a unique instrument for its scientific role. I will discuss the latest status of the project and routes for external scientists and technologists to get involved.
