Astronomy committee meets to decide access to Australia's world-class telescopes
My last appearance on the Australia Telescope Time Assignment Committee surprisingly was accompanied by an ABC News story on the role and operation of the committee. I really enjoyed my time on the TAC, despite the workload and deadlines; it's great to have such a broad overview of how our community chooses to utilise the national resources available to them. The other TAC members have been great fun to work with, and the ATNF staff are always helpful and responsive. I may have even learned a little about radio astronomy, although no proposals from me... yet!
