Letter of Intent signing with NARIT
Yesterday, a signing ceremony was held at Marsfield with a visiting delegation from the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT). NARIT has been funded to construct a 40 m radio telescope, and the Letter of Intent recognises the possibilities for collaboration in areas of mutual interest and benefit to both sides. After the documents were signed, by Dr Saran Poshyachinda, Executive Director of NARIT, and Dr Douglas Bock, Director of CASS, gifts were exchanged. CASS received a framed photo of a night-time view of NARIT's optical observatory, and CASS presented NARIT with a globe of Jupiter, which it was noted passed through opposition (the point in its orbit where it is 180 degrees from the sun as viewed from Earth) that very day!
