The 36th Annual New Mexico Symposium
  13 November 2020 - National Radio Astronomy Observatory

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) is sponsoring the 36th Annual New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 13 November 2020.
