Work begins to replace trailer at UND Observatory
The UND John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences and the UND Department of Space Studies have begun efforts to identify a temporary replacement for the old trailer currently residing at the UND Observatory. The current trailer is in a serious state of disrepair, lacks central heating, and is in need of replacement.
Immediate efforts will find funding for a mobile office trailer that will replace the current trailer. A long-term solution is the construction of a small building. A modern, safe, and network-capable structure is highly desirable at the site because of the need to operate, monitor, and maintain the observatory's suite of remotely-controllable telescopes.
