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!
