AAS 235: Welcome!


This week, we’re attending the American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting in Honolulu, Hawai’i!

Astrobites authors talk to students at the undergraduate orientation at AAS 235 Saturday night.

Thanks to all of you who stopped by the Astrobites table at the undergraduate reception last night; we look forward to seeing you around at the rest of the meeting. If you’re at the meeting and missed us at the undergrad reception, please stop by and visit this week! You can find us at the AAS booth (#423) in the exhibit hall — we have sunglasses, stickers, pins, and more, so swing by to pick up some swag and say hi.

For anyone who’s missing the meeting, or for those attending who can’t make all the sessions you want to: Astrobites and AAS Nova are working together to report highlights from each day. You can follow along on astrobites.org or at aasnova.org; look for an update after each day of the meeting. If you’d like to see more timely updates during the day, we encourage you to search the #aas235 hashtag on twitter.

If you’re interested in reading up on some of the keynote speakers before their talks at the meeting, keep following along at astrobites.com … we’ll be posting interviews with speakers in advance of their keynote talks. Several of these interviews for AAS 235 have already been published; you can check them all out under the aas235 tag on astrobites.com. This is a great opportunity to learn more about prominent astrophysicists and the paths they took to get where they are today!
