Par for radioastronomy.

Par for radioastronomy

The radiotelescope in Delaware, Ohio, that was threatened with destruction by the expansion of a golf course (SN: 20/12/83, p. 101) has now definitely been saved, Phillip E. Barnhart of Otterbein College in Westerville, Ohio, reported at the meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Ames, Iowa, last week. Four institutions have formed the North American Astro-Physical Observatory to operate the telescope and have negotiated a 10-year renewable ground lease with the owners of the golf course. Built by Ohio State University at Columbus and Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio, the instrument was threatened when Ohio Wesleyan sold the ground on which it stands to the owners of the golf course.
