Affordable, cozy and well-kept top floor condominium unit located in a desirable neighborhood in Fairbanks that would be perfect for faculty or a graduate school student! The unit faces south, with a full-length (covered!) deck that looks out onto the Hamilton Acres Park. It has a designated parking space, open floor plan, laundry facilities on-site, and an additional storage closet. The bedroom is a fantastic size, comfortably accommodating a king-size bed, with a walk in closet that easily holds all the Alaskan gear! In 2016 the building the unit is in had a new high-efficiency boiler installed as well as a new roof. Very convenient location for shopping, bus lines, and Ft. Wainwright access. Enjoy a winter of convenience staying warm and connected to high-speed internet! Excellent opportunity for a first time home buyer or investor or someone who travels frequently and would like to have a home base.

Science Event of the Week
In 1982, Halley's Comet was observed on its 30th recorded visit to Earth, first detected using the 5-m (200-in) Hale Telescope at the Mount Palomar Observatory by a team of astronomers led by David Jewett and G. Edward Danielson. They found the comet, beyond the orbit of Saturn, about 11 AU (1.6 billion km) from the Sun. While 50 million times fainter than the faintest objects our eyes can see, they needed to use not only the largest American telescope but also special electronic equipment developed for the Space Telescope. In 1705, Halley used Newton's theories to compute the orbit and correctly predicted the return of this comet about every 76 years. After his death, for correctly predicting its reappearance, it was named after Halley.
