"StarDate 2014: Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the McDonald Observatory," by Rebecca Johnson
2014 is the 75th anniversary of the McDonald Observatory and all the science education it provides across our huge state. Rebecca will kick off the celebration early by discussing the Struve Telescope, the first large telescope at the Observatory, and the efforts to get the original model back to Texas (via Austin!) in time for the anniversary.
Rebecca Johnson is the Editor at StarDate magazine, the outreach arm of the McDonald Observatory in Fort Stockton. The StarDate program includes the magazine and and the nationally syndicated radio show heard on NPR affiliates.
