Meet the AAS Keynote Speakers: Gurtina Besla

The recent Gaia data release is revolutionizing the way we understand our Milky Way and the galaxies around it. Come to Professor Gurtina Besla’s #AAS232 talk to find out more about the cutting-edge scientific discoveries being made! As Besla says, “You’re not going to read anything I’m going to talk about in a book.”

Astrobites at AAS 232: Welcome

This week, Astrobites is attending the American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting in Denver, Colorado! We’ll be bringing you highlights from the meeting all week long.

Meet the AAS Keynote Speakers: Debra Fischer

Most of the known exoplanets resemble “hot Jupiters” because they’re bigger and easier to find. But how can we find Earth-like planets? Check out Dr. Debra Fischer’s plenary talk at #AAS232 to learn more about the “Past, Present, and Future” of exoplanet science.

Meet the AAS Keynote Speakers: Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz

As Carl Sagan said, “If you wish to make apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” More specifically, to make some neutron-rich elements like gold and uranium, you need neutron star mergers. Check out Professor Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz’s upcoming #AAS232 talk to learn more about what it takes to make the heaviest elements in the universe.
