Dark skies and remote sites have attracted world-class astronomical
facilities to the Southwest and supported a wide range of research
since the mid-1900s. Regional achievements span areas in both science
and technology including optical and radio interferometry, as well as
new understanding of solar physics, planetary science, star and galaxy
formation and evolution, and the creation and evolution of our universe.
To support the network of scientific research in the Southwest and
encourage interdisciplinary discussions, the
National Radio Astronomy
Observatory (NRAO) and
New Mexico Tech are
sponsoring the 33rd
Annual New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 3 November 2017, at the NRAO
Science Operations Center (SOC) in Socorro, NM.
