AAS 225: Monday, January 5

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anything here, so I hope I'm not out of practice at typing really fast. Anyway, I'm here at the 2015 Winter AAS meeting, and will again be blogging my way through all of the sessions I attend. I would love to start with the Kavli Foundation Lecture on Earth's Van Allen Belts (I didn't know we were still learning new things about them!), but I have to go help set up the AstroBetter booth so I unfortunately have to miss out on what promises to be a really interesting talk. Also, as usual, don't expect anything particularly comprehensive, as it will be me taking really quick notes as the talk goes on.

The first talk I've been able to attend (while not running around doing stuff for AstroBetter) is the early afternoon plenary talk. So here we go! (Science policy... should be interesting).
