AAS 237: Welcome!

This week, AAS Nova and Astrobites are attending the virtual American Astronomical Society (AAS) winter meeting.

AAS Nova Editor Susanna Kohler and AAS Media Fellow Tarini Konchady will join Astrobites Media Intern Haley Wahl and Astrobiters Ellis Avallone, Mike Foley, Michael Hammer, Gourav Khullar, Briley Lewis, Abygail Waggoner, John Weaver, and Luna Zagorac to live-blog the meeting for all those who aren’t attending or can’t make all the sessions they’d like. We plan to cover all of the plenaries and press conferences as well as a number of additional sessions, so follow along here on aasnova.org or on astrobites.org!

As with the summer meeting, we’re sad not to get to talk to you in person, but we’re glad to have this virtual alternative! We look forward to seeing you in sessions and visiting your posters throughout the next three days.

Where can you find us? We’ll be at the Astrobites booth in the Grad Student Fair all week — stop by and join us in the chat room! In addition, you can catch Susanna, Tarini, and Haley at the press conferences all week.

Also, there’s a lot of Astrobiter science at AAS 237 — be sure to check out the talks and posters given by Astrobites authors in the schedule below.

Lastly, if you’re interested in reading up on some of the keynote speakers before their talks at the meeting, be sure to check out the interviews conducted by Astrobites authors! They’ll be published throughout this week, and they provide a great opportunity to discover more about these prominent astrophysicists and learn about the paths they took to where they are today.

You can read the currently published AAS237 keynote speaker interviews here. Be sure to check back all week as the remainder are released!
