Look at the Astro 2201 frequently asked questions for the whole semester.
Professor Haynes is one of the leaders of the Cornell-led CCAT project, a submillimeter telescope being built at an altitude of 18,400 feet in the high Atacama Desert of northern Chile. In this PBS interview, she talks about the telescope, the site and the science it will enable.
Prof. Haynes is the co-PI of the ALFALFA survey, including the Undergraduate ALFALFA Team. The Cornell ExtraGalactic Group observes a lot with the Arecibo telescope -- Perhaps you saw this telescope in the films "Golden Eye" or "Contact".
Our recent work on Fast Radio Bursts got quite a bit of coverage in the media, including the New York Times and the Washington Post. One of the co-authors was an undergraduate summer student in the Cornell REU program!
