New studies using the VLA and other telescopes have added to our knowledge of what happens when a black hole shreds a star, but also have raised new questions that astronomers must tackle.
We Make Scientific Breakthroughs Possible
The Infrastructure of Discovery Doesn’t Happen Overnight.
Driven by Impact
We transform ideas into technologies, laboratories, and policies that initiate, inform, and inspire. For over seven decades, AUI has developed specialized expertise in science, engineering, technology, and cyber security to enable greater impact. Uniquely positioned, we combine exceptional operations management with collaborative community engagement drive innovation and affect lasting change within organizations.
Experts at Managing Complexity
We create an environment where innovation, imagination, and people thrive. Even in the harshest desert terrain, discovery flourishes at ALMA, where AUI has led an international partnership with Europe, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Chile. The $1.4 billion project is a monumental achievement for space exploration and collaborations.
Ambassadors for Science
We believe we are part of something greater than ourselves and that our work today should help solve tomorrow’s challenges. As trailblazers for STEM, we laid the ground work for transformative, accessible, educational experiences while expanding e-learning programs and international outreach efforts.
Catalysts for the Future
Woodstar Labs was created to incubate new areas of engineering, analysis, and research to address the ongoing needs of our shared, critical infrastructure and to protect communities. We are tackling cybersecurity risks within the energy sector, state elections, and academia by creating resources for underserved sectors.
Get ready for close-up surface images of distant planets in our solar system.
The Canadian Astronomy Long Range Plan 2020-2030, a report on priorities and recommendations for Canadian astronomy over the next decade, has recommended that Canada support the National Radio Astronomy Observatory’s (NRAO) proposed Next Generation Very Large Array (ngVLA), saying the new facility will enable transformational science across many areas of astrophysics.
