Recap: 16 Feb 2011

Laura was our host for today's journal club.  Thanks to her for doing so!  Things we talked about were:

Data at risk.  Is all astronomical data at risk.  There is an international call for preserving that data.

Brasil is joining ESO, the first non-European member!  Read up on it here.

Talked a bit about TMT, worrying about money!  And there has been some discussion through Victoria/HIA about converting CFHT into a 10m class dedicated spectroscopic telescope.  A great idea....but is there money for that?

IceCube Neutrino observatory has begun operations! Check out their website!

thanks for hosting Laura!
