Kevin and Jordan at AAS
Here is another photo from the AAS meeting last week. Georgia Bracey took this photo, catching Kevin and I in the act of working during the reception before the opening of the International Year of Astronomy:
What can I say? I was curious about the peas, and Kevin had some results to show me.
After this photo was taken, Kevin shut down the laptop and we went back to drinking our free Sierra Nevada Galileo Ale. The opening of the International Year of Astronomy was great, featuring a live stream from the Cincinatti Observatory (through UStream – the video loads slowly, but it’s worth it), the premiere of a documentary called 400 Years of the Telescope, and the opening of the International Year of Astronomy island in Second Life. 2009 promises to be an exciting year in astronomy!
