Astrobites at AAS Indianapolis: The return of “One-liners”

Astrobites is again at the American Astronomical Society’s summer meeting, this time held in Indianapolis, IN today June 3 through Thursday June 6. We have two exciting announcements regarding our presence at the conference.


Astrobites One-liners from AAS Press Conferences

At AAS Long Beach, Astrobites began a new coverage format: live tweets from Oral Sessions, with one tweet for each talk. In Indianapolis we’re taking this idea into the press conferences. Stay tuned to our twitter feed (@astrobites) at 10:15 am and 2:15 pm Monday June 3, 2:15 Tuesday June 4 and 12:45 Wednesday June 5 for the latest astronomical discoveries in 140 characters or less!


Astrobites presents first ever Oral Presentation at AAS

If you’ve attended a AAS meeting in the last 3 years you’ve probably seen our posters (and perhaps eaten our cookies). This meeting I will be presenting a talk on Astrobites in the Astronomy Education and Public Outreach Session on Tuesday, June 4 from 10:00-11:30 (the talk is only 5 minutes long, and will be toward the end of the session). If you’re in Indianapolis, come check it out in room 116 at the convention center.

The following two tabs change content below.

I am a second-year graduate student at Harvard University, where I have been working with Alyssa Goodman studying the role of pressure in star-forming regions through combining simulations and observations. I’m also involved in a project with Charlie Lada on the continuing search for a universal law directly relating star formation to the dense gas we see in molecular clouds. I graduated from Indiana University in 2011, and hold bachelor’s degrees in Physics, Astronomy, Mathematics, and Dance Pedagogy.
