Plans for construction near Laramie, Wyoming, of an 84-inch infrared telescope, the largest of its type in the continental United States and one of the world's largest, have been announced by the National Science Foundation and the University of Wyoming. The $1.6 million instrument is expected to be operational in late 1977.
NSF is providing $625,000 of the construction cost, with the $975,000 balance to come from the State of Wyoming.
