NSF Astronomy: Enabling Universal Discoveries from the Ground Up NSF's Division of Astronomical Sciences (AST) in its Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Directorate, funds world-class facilities that use

cutting-edge technology providing images that rival the view from space. AST funds a variety of powerful radio, optical and solar telescopes that are providing scientists with a better look at the universe from various angles and in a different light--often, quite literally. In some cases, several different telescopes arranged in clusters may be found at the same facility.

The NSF will hold several talks in their Pavilion throughout the General Assembly. Review the schedule below and plan to attend.
