Scottish Astrophysics Departments

January 23 2014 , Written by Wing-Fai Thi

A rare coincidence occurs between two major astrophysical institutes in Scotland. The Royal Observatory Edinburgh (ROE) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at St-Andrews University are located in the close vicinity of world-famous old Golf course (http://www.linksgolfstandrews.com/About-Us/Welcome). The ROE is located near the Craigmilar Park Golf Course (http://www.craigmillarpark.co.uk). We can argue that this coincidence can only happen in Scotland :-)
