Astronomy from CONCORDIA in the General Framework of SCAR

  • N. Epchtein, M. Candidi and M. Candidi (a1)

Abstract

The importance of CONCORDIA as a perspective site for Antarctic astronomy is being increasingly considered both by the scientists and the managers of Antarctic research. The data available indicate that this may be the best site on Earth, and under some respects even better than space, at least in some observational bands. Further site testing is needed to make this a generally held opinion. Still, operations from CONCORDIA need to be planned immediately. SCAR recognises the enormous potential of CONCORDIA, and of the Antarctic plateau in general; so much so that it encourages the international astronomical community to identify a Scientific Research Program in Antarctic astronomy and astrophysics to be considered by the national delegates at its next general assembly in 2008. The role of ARENA in the preparation of this proposal should be as relevant as the quality of the site suggests.
