Comparing faces: ASTRON & JIVE staff of 1980 and 2008

Submitter: Femke Boekhorst
Description: On Monday 10 November 2008, a group picture of (almost) all staff of ASTRON and JIVE was taken. The last time such a group photograph like this was taken, was on 19 December 1980. At that time, ASTRON didn’t have quite as many employees as it has now, while JIVE didn't even exist yet. In 1992, JIVE was located at ASTRON, which contributed to increasing the number of people working in Dwingeloo. After 25 years, it seemed appropriate to have a new staff picture made, in which this growth of the institute is visible.
