  • The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is a consortium of universities and other institutions that operates astronomical observatories and telescopes. AURA recognizes its mission statement as "To promote excellence in astronomical research by providing access to state-of-the-art facilities." Founded October 10, 1957 with the encouragement of the National Science Foundation (NSF), AURA was incorporated by a group of seven U.S. universities: California, Chicago, Harvard, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio State, and Wisconsin. The first meeting of the Board of Directors took place in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Today, AURA has 39 member institutions in the United States and seven international affiliate members. AURA began as a small organization dedicated to ground-based optical astronomy, managing a range of 1- to 4-meter telescopes and providing community advocacy for optical/infrared astronomy. Over the years, AURA expanded its focus to include Solar Astronomy and the Gemini 8-meter telescopes, going on to partner with other consortia such as WIYN (Wisconsin Indiana Yale & NOAO) and SOAR (Southern Astrophysical Research). In the 1980s, AURA took on the management of the Space Telescope Science Institute, opening up the ultraviolet, optical, and infrared wavelength bands in space with the Hubble Space Telescope. AURA is furthering its aims in infrared space astronomy through the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The organization is responsible for the operation of several important observatories, known as "AURA centers": the Gemini Observatory; the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST); the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO); the National Solar Observatory (NSO); and the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).

Foi fundada em 10 de Outubro de 1957 e não é lucrativa. No começo em sua fundação, a AURA tinha consórcios com apenas 7 universidades dos Estados Unidos (California, Chicago, Harvard, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio e Winconsir). Atualmente, a AURA têm como membros 38 instituições norte-americanas e 7 instituições de outros países. A AURA começou como uma pequena organização baseada no estudo da Astronomia óptica. Hoje em dia, ela é responsável pela operação dos observatórios: * Gemini Observatory * National Optical Astronomy Observatories (NOAO) * National Solar Observatory (NSO) * Space Telescope Science Institute (STScl) e o * New Initiative Office (NIO) (pt)
  • 大学天文研究协会(Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy,缩写为AURA)是由多所大学的天文研究机构组成的非营利组织,在美国国家科学基金会的资助下于1957年3月29日成立,目的是将分散在各大学的人力和经费进行整合,使其得到高效率的利用,避免重复建设。最初有美国的22所大学参加,经过数十年的发展,其成员已经有30多个,并且也已经不再局限于美国。 大学天文研究协会管理的机构有: * 美国国家光学天文台,包括位于美国亚利桑那州的基特峰、新墨西哥州的萨克拉门托峰、智利托洛洛山的望远镜。 * 雙子星天文台,由多个国家参与的国际合作项目,有两台望远镜,分别位于北半球夏威夷的莫纳克亚山和南半球智利的帕穹山。 * 空间望远镜研究所,主要任务是管理和运行哈勃空间望远镜。 大学天文研究协会的成员有: * 美国大学: * 其它国家的大学有: * 澳大利亚澳洲國立大學 * 澳大利亚旋濱科技大學 * 荷兰的莱顿大学 * 智利大学 * 智利天主大学 * 墨西哥国立自治大学 (zh)
