Astronomy Faces Monetary Problems

x ;jx:;

(Continued from Page 1)
"As new astronomical facilities
grow in cost, there is a need to
concentrate facilities on a national
level in good locations. This way,
greate'r efficiency can be obtain-
ed," he says. 1
"And this is the reason for
spending money in the national
centers" and holding. it from the
dispersed facilities around the
Radio astronomy is in its early
stages of growth. It is an exciting
time for radio astronomers, Prof.,
Haddock says.
Excitement, Newness
"Radio astronomy needs money,
therefore, to build the facilities
for a new field." This excitement
and newness of the field is an
important factor in getting funds
for radio astronomy, he points
"With his background in optical
astronomy, Prof. Aller wrote the
article," Prof. Haddock says. "He
is a little misleading but he is
right about how funds are related
to need."
Prof. Aller says that a "strong
grass-roots program of support
should be provided for universi-
ties whose departments of astron-
omy are able and willing to play
their part but are prevented from
doing so by lack of funds for such
capital investments as adequate
modern telescopes."
Demand Too Great
Of course, there have been
counter - proposals, like having
more scientists use the existing
facilities at' Kitt Peak but "the
demand is greater than the
supply," Prof. Haddock says.
Another monetary trend is the
increasing cost of building the big

about $6 million to build. Today,
such a facility would cost around
$20 million, Prof. Haddock says.
Prof. Haddock is a member of a
newly formed committee of the
National Academy of Science that
will project the needs of astronomy
in terms of facilities for the next
The first meeting of the com-
mittee was held in January and
a report to the government is ex-
pected sometime in the late fall.
"Many astronomers wrote to
the committee. I have a pile of
letters a foot high," Prof. Had-
dock says.
Through this general discus-
sion, the committee hopes to come
to some conclusions.
Prof. Haddock says that "it is
a fact there is a lack of funds"
in some places but that "theucon-
clusions will not be simple to
Universities faced with problems'
of financing astronomy projects
may cooperate with neighboring
universities in joint projects, Prof.

Haddock says. This means of fi-
nancing already is used in physics,
and is a rising trend in astronomy.
Fragmented Facilities
In Australia and England, for
example, astronomical facilities
are concentrated as compared to
the fragmented facilities in the
United States, he notes.
"In ratio to their Gross Na-
tional Products, these countries
receive more support for their as-
tronomical work than does the
United States," Prof. Haddock
"This is a very crucial subject
and it is the committee's purpose
to solve some of these problems."
