The East Asian Observatory (EAO) now operates the James Clerk Maxwell Submillimetre Telescope (JCMT) and also provides engineering and IT support for the UKIRT Observatory, both of which are located near the summit of Maunakea on the Big Island of Hawaii. On Thursday 6th, at 6pm come to Room 312 and hear about the latest science from the JCMT. The EAO (East Asian Observatory) was formed by EACOA (East Asian Core Observatories Association) to build and operate astronomical facilities which will enhance and leverage existing and planned regional facilities. The JCMT is their first such endeavor.
