AstroAlert: Will the United States lose the Universe?

Hi everyone,
[vcex_spacing size=”10px”]
The New York Times has a thought-provoking article today by science journalist Dennis Overbye. It’s a wake-up call for American astronomy as European astronomy in general, and the new Extremely Large Telescope in particular, zoom ahead of the competition. If you’d like to read the article, you’ll find it here.

Best wishes to everyone for happy holidays and a wonderful 2020!
