"The future of the Arecibo radio observatory... continues to hang in the balance.

In 2007, the National Science Foundation (NSF)... announced that it will drastically scale down support for the observatory over the coming years.

...by 2011 the NSF will cut funds from their current level of $10.4 million, to a mere $4 million.

.
.
.
The fight to save Arecibo has now shifted to Capitol Hill. A Senate bill introduced by Senator Hillary Clinton in April (S. 2862), and an identical bill put before the House by Puerto Rico Comissioner Luis Fortuno (H.R. 3737), directs the NSF to ensure that Arecibo remains fully funded and operational.



Please call your representatives and senators. They can all be reached by dialing 1-202-225-3121.
