Famous telescope faces possible destruction
The meetings are today, Thursday November 17, 2016 at 10 AM and 1 PM at the San Juan Double Tree on 105 Avenida De Diego. A map to the hotel can be be found here.
Specifically the NSF is trying to determine first, whether the facility is worth funding. And, if not, what happens next. There is already a technical report on the proposed changes, which already lay the various drafts of the supporting documents for the DEIS. And yes, deconstruction of the entire facility is among the alternatives.
I urge any who can attend the meetings to please stop by. Just by showing up, we can show our support for the telescope! As one of the most recognizable landmarks in Puerto Rico, it would be a crying shame for it to be lost. I'd write more now, but I've to get moving. I hope to see you there.
