I’ll be attending the American Astronomical Society/Astronomy Society of the Pacific Meeting in St. Louis for the next few days, starting Saturday, May 31 with some educational workshops and symposiums, and then Monday-Thursday is the AAS conference. This will be my first conference as a journalist, and I’m looking forward to being overwhelmed and star-struck.
If you’ll be there, or if you happen to be in the St. Louis area, we are planning a “Astroblogger Meet-Up” on Tuesday, June 3 at 7:00 pm at KitchenK bar & restaurant. The big names who will be there: Pamela Gay from Astronomy Cast and Star Stryder, Phil Plait from Bad Astronomy, Chris Lintott from Chris Lintott’s Universe and Galaxy Zoo, and Tammy Plotner and me (Nancy) from Universe Today, and more. Please join us if you can!
If you can’t be in St. Louis, we’ll try to bring the conference to you via reports and articles here on UT and liveblogging on Astronomy Cast Live.
