Dear List: Because Paul Allen is a neighbor here in Green Valley, AZ, the local astronomy club was interested to learn that Mr. Allen was about to provide funds for a new astronomy project. This was a couple of years ago. We heard the new project would either be in California or in Chile - a new huge dual telescope facility. He decided to go with the incredible new telescope in Chile. Which, BTW, will discover new planets and do follow-up work on those planets already on the list. Not to worry, the skies will be covered better than ever. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
