Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute
The main Astronomy Institute named after Prof. Fesenkov was founded by academician V.G.Fesenkov in 1941 and is well known in the world. In recent years a new generation of astronomers were trained by the earlier generation of scientists. In addition, some young scientists go abroad for study and work and return back thus creating an additional strength to astronomy in Kazakhstan. Recently, an Astronomy Department has been created at the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, so that Kazakh young people can study astronomy right in Almaty. Recently, the government of the Kazakhstan decided to unite three major astronomical institutions (Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute, Ionospheric Institute and Space Research Institute) to one “National Centrum of Space Researches and Technologies” (NCSRT), which is expected to enhance Kazakhstan’s Space exploration program, though the process is not easy and demands special attention to support astronomical scientific researchers. There are several small observatories around Almaty which are used for observations of different astronomical objects, for training young scholars and also to show astronomy for the public.
