AAS 244: Welcome!

This week, AAS Nova and Astrobites are attending the American Astronomical Society (AAS) summer meeting in Madison, WI, and online.

AAS Nova Editors Kerry Hensley and Susanna Kohler and AAS Media Fellow Ben Cassese will join Astrobites Media Intern Nathalie Korhonen Cuestas and Astrobiters Will Golay, Catherine Slaughter, and Jessie Thwaites to live-blog the meeting for all those who aren’t attending or can’t make it to all the sessions they’d like. We plan to cover all of the plenaries and press conferences, so follow along here on aasnova.org or astrobites.org! You can also follow Astrobites on Bluesky at astrobites.bsky.social for more meeting content.

Where can you find us during the meeting? We’ll be at the Astrobites booth in the Exhibit Hall all week — stop by and say hello! You can also find Kerry, Susanna, and Ben at the press conferences Monday through Wednesday. AAS press conferences are open to all, and they can also be viewed on the AAS Press Office YouTube channel for anyone not attending the meeting.

Finally, you can read the currently published AAS 244 keynote speaker interviews here. Be sure to check back all week as the remainder are released!
