Arecibo Observatory Options Workshop

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is interested in exploring novel ideas for future scientific, educational, and cultural activities at the Arecibo Observatory following the collapse of the 305-meter telescope platform. In order to explore the broadest range of options possible, NSF will hold an online workshop focused on finding actionable and innovative ways to support, broaden, and strengthen the radio science community across all of Puerto Rico and to create or enhance the opportunities for (1) science and (2) educational and cultural activities and public outreach at the Arecibo Observatory. Participants at universities, colleges, and non-academic educational or research organizations in Puerto Rico are particularly encouraged to contribute.

For more information, please see the Dear Colleague Letter or the Workshop website.
