Concesión de los Permisos Ambientales para la construcción de TAOS II en el Observatorio Astronómico Nacional de San Pedro Mártir.

With the recent approval of the Environmental Impact Study for TAOS II by México's federal authorities (SEMARNAT), an important step has been taken toward the construction of the project's facilities at the San Pedro Mártir National Astronomícal Observatory. The site's excellent astronomical weather is considered one of the key elements to guarantee the scientific success of the project, set to begin construction early next year.

A joint effort of UNAM's Instituto de Astronomía and local and federal authorities led to the granting of the environmental permits, which include important provisions to prevent, mitigate and compensate for the impact to the environment, a pine forest natural park located in northwest México.
