What We Like About the Site

AURA’s site is a classic university site that reminds us most of all of the early days of the Internet when information and information alone was the coin of the realm—the Internet was for researchers and scientists. How did all this dash and flash since then come about? Whatever the trajectory of the modern sales-driven site, this site and all of its sister sites share the same mindset—information is king. Digging in to this and the companion sites is exciting stuff. Really! For example, one of the goals of the James Webb Space Telescope is to locate and understand first light objects from the birth of the universe. Wow. Big ideas. Big goals.
