Large Astronomical Facilities: Their Fundamental Importance for Swiss Astronomers
Astrophysics and cosmology have experienced a golden age over the last two decades, due to fundamental observational and theoretical progresses in all areas investigated. Swiss astronomers have made substantial contributions to those fields thanks to the many modern facilities they can use throughout the world. Without a regular access to them, and international collaborations, present day research in astronomy is unthinkable. This booklet is meant to highlight the impact and their importance for Swiss researchers.
