Arecibo: Frontiers of Astronomy

With their telescope on the chopping block, some of Arecibo's top users will be gathering in Washington, DC next month to map out the future of science at the world's largest radio dish.

Likely research goals: more big sky surveys with the (relatively) new ALFA feed array system, which boosted the telescope's data collection rate by a factor of seven; long-term pulsar timing; SETI; and more.
