This is more of a general thing. I was browsing the FT noticeboard and someone had been posting about this site and mentioned that the Vatican Observatory is associated with the University of Arizona. Indeed it is:
I haven't figured out what kind of connection this might have but it does seem a bit more than a coincidence, given some of the general themes running through these ads. Maybe this has something to do with 'why Arizona', I don't know. Maybe something to think about though?
Hance: Way back in the day I had a job with one of the observatories on campus - I was just their office monkey - and I too asked this same question when I walked by an office one day and saw their offices. It turns out that the Vatican has an enormous interest in astronomy - see:
While they do maintain an office here on campus, we're a huge optics and astronomy campus ... so any number of hundreds of such instituations have people or offices or resources here.
