Save the Stanford Radio Telescope Dishes! sign now

Dear President Hennessy,

We strongly support the rescue of the Stanford Radio Telescope Dishes by the Friends of the Bracewell Observatory Association (FBOA) to open up the world of radio astronomy to Stanford's faculty, students, and community!

In light of the number of Stanford faculty and students who have already signed up to use the facility, FBOA's readiness to provide long-term funding and expert maintenance, and the fact that it carries a $10 million replacement cost, we feel it would be a tragedy for the telescope to be demolished for no compelling reason.

We urge you to suspend the planned demolition, and accept FBOA's offer to fully fund, refurbish, and maintain the observatory.
