Visit Astrobites at the AAAS Meeting in Boston

Boston, before being deluged with two feet of snow last weekend.

It’s that time of the year – the annual meeting of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science), the world’s largest general scientific society. This is not to be confused with the AAS meeting – the meeting of the American Astronomical Society, where Astrobites is always represented in force.

But this year the AAAS meeting is in Boston, where many of Astrobites’ authors are based, so we’ll be here throughout the meeting! If you’ll be there too, please come find us to say hi! You can send us a tweet @astrobites or an email at, or just stop by our poster at the session on Sunday.

Our poster will be #9758 in Exhibit Hall C of Hynes Convention Center from 1-5 pm on Sunday.

This year there are symposium tracks for both the physical sciences and science communication, so you can expect to see us there too. What sessions, posters, or other AAAS events are you looking forward to?

About Nathan Sanders

I am a graduate student in astronomy at Harvard University. I’m particularly interested in how galaxies have changed over time and the chemical evolution history of the universe. I’m currently working with Alicia Soderberg on observations of supernovae and their host galaxies; investigating how massive stars explode and enrich the interstellar medium. I graduated from Michigan State University in May, 2010.
