Dear Colleagues,

I’m delighted to report that the Australian Government has announced its
intention to enter into a ten-year strategic partnership with the European
Southern Observatory (ESO). The partnership will enable Australian access
to the ESO telescopes at the La Silla and Paranal Observatories.

AAL has been assisting the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science
with this matter. The AAL Board congratulates the Australian Government on
this initiative, which ensures Australian astronomers have access to
world-leading research infrastructure.

AAL will hold a meeting of its member representatives in the coming days to
explain the details of this major development. If you are not sure who
represents your institution on AAL matters, please see:

Kind regards,


Professor Rachel Webster

Chair, Astronomy Australia Ltd
