Have you ever wondered why the Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) is being built in such a way the the telescopes will be movable along the array? Or what it takes to keep the narrow, winding dirt road up to the Magdalena Ridge Observatory (MRO) in tip-top shape? How was MROI instrumental in offering COVID-19 aid relief to the Alamo Navajo Reservation in Socorro County, New Mexico? You can find the answers to these questions and many more in our latest newsletter!
The MRO Biannual Special Edition July Newsletter is available for free download on our website here! You can also download newsletters from previous months and learn about light painting (June 2020), read about an MRO Open House visitor’s experience at the Observatory (May 2020), and find out about one of MROI’s student employee’s experiences working with the MROI team (May 2020).
Each month the MROI newsletters are delivered directly to the email inbox of the members of our Friends of Magdalena Ridge Observatory on the first of the month. The newsletter is released to the general public a few weeks later, and made available for download on the MRO website. If you are interested in hearing our news on the first of each month, please consider becoming a member of Friends of MRO! Follow this link for more information.
