A Canadian Vision of International Astronomy and Astrophysics
This chapter is drawn from a lecture given by the President of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) (Arthur J. Carty) at the 201 st Meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS1) on 6 January 2003 in Seattle, WA. The lecture speaks of the trend toward greater, multi-nation collaboration in astronomy as exemplified by the Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA) project, and it proposes the vision of a world plan within a decade. It describes Canada’s commitment to international partnerships in astronomical facilities and the scientific and technological benefits that it has realized through partnerships that include the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), and, more recently the Gemini Telescope.
