I wish I could be back in my hometown of Seattle, but alas, this year it was jus too much stress on my schedule to attend. Still, there is lots of AstroWright group science there. Here it is, day by day:
Poster 138.20: Cedric Hagen presents a new project with Brendan Miller, Greg Henry, me, and others on stellar activity cycles. We’ve got decades of photometry and activity now; we can learn a lot about where the Sun fits in among “Sun-like” stars.
Poster 138.27: Brendan Miller presents our work on star-planet magnetic interactions.
Poster 257.11: Ming Zhao presents his secondary eclipse work on Kepler 13 Ab with HST.
Poster 258.23: Suvrath Mahadevan presents our progress on the Habitable Zone Planet Finder.
Poster 336.27: Jessica Maldonado of Cal Poly Pomona presents her contribution to our Ĝ SETI project. Jessica did a LOT of literature searches to help us understand which sources we found were understood — and which were new to science.
Poster 337.09: Jason Eastman, the MINERVA project manager, presents our first science with the not-yet-complete array: photometric detection of transiting planets.
