Toronto Observatory – once one of the largest in the world – to be sold. November 6, 2007

Further proof that Toronto is a second rate city. The University of Toronto is selling off the David Dunlap Observatory and the 191-acre property that surrounds it.

When the observatory opened in 1935 the 188-centimetre telescope was the world’s second-largest.

The first Black Hole ever discovered – Cygnus X1 was discovered by the Dunlap observatory..

But now the GREED OF TORONTO is sending this great center of science into a black hole fueled by a lack of foresight and a total disrespect for the memory of the man who donated the money to endow the observatory in 1935.

Toronto apparently values development over science – and apparently has little regard for Astronomy.

The Toronto Star has a solid story on this travesty. It’s a darn shame that the University of Toronto, the Government of Ontario and Canada have no respect for the wishes of the people.

Toronto has a very poor relationship with Astronomy in fact – it was just yesterday that we reported on the sad state of the Toronto McLauglin Planetarium…which is now likely set to become a condo development.

You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be
actually something that I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me.

I am taking a look ahead in your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get
the dangle of it!
