KPNO Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

KPNO is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Please visit the KPNO Web Site http://www.noao.edu/kpno/40th for a striking collection of images and recollections. You will also be receiving a special supplement to Nature magazine in October commemorating the occasion with reflections and review articles of current topics to which Kitt Peak observers have made major contributions. It took vision and persistence to establish a national facility dedicated to cutting-edge observations based on peer reviewed scientific merit. We look forward to continuing a tradition of excellence, with the reward of enriching the intellectual ferment of astronomical discovery for years to come.
