A telescope on the moon?

This week Steward Observatory is having our annual "Internal Symposium." This is a two-day informal meeting where many of the astronomers, students, and other people associated with Steward come and give talks so we all know what each other is working on. It's a lot of fun, and we get a lot of talks on quite unrelated science.

Yesterday's highlights included a faculty member who is working on a design for a telescope on the moon, a talk about the International Dark Sky Association, discussions of the progress on building the Large Binocular Telescope, and even research into variations of Einstein's Relativity.

Later I'll talk more about the lunar observatory -- it's way cool.
