Astronomers Spot Differences in Thickness of Milky Way Galaxy

Astronomers using the National Science Foundation’s Green Bank Telescope targeted the Smith Cloud for their observations, however, the Milky Way’s inner galaxy obscured their view. While these scientists didn’t find what they were originally looking for, they did observe something new about this part of our home galaxy. This inner part of the Milky Way appears to be half the size of the outer part!

Pride Month Statement

Pride Month is a time for celebration of LGBTQIA+ communities and commemoration of the Stonewall Uprising of 1969 and the ensuing liberation movement it inspired for the ongoing fight for full equality.

At AUI, we celebrate an environment that is safe and welcoming to all, and the strength that our diversity brings us. We also reflect on our policies, outreach, and behavior to ensure a meaningful and lasting embrace of diversity and inclusion every day—beyond the month of June. At AUI, we remain committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace culture that welcomes and appreciates all individuals regardless of race, gender, gender identity/expression, age, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religious affiliation, or national origin and culture.

Innovation and problem solving skills are paramount to science and technology and we ensure a diversity of perspectives and attract and retain top talent through a culture of inclusivity. This month we celebrate the LGBTQIA+ communities and how they help make AUI better as an organization.
