NASA scientists will present exciting new findings on a wide range of topics in the field of astrophysics next week at the American Astronomical Society’s (AAS) 223rd annual meeting in National Harbor, Md.
The meeting takes place Jan. 5-9 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, located at 201 Waterfront Street. Media registration for the event is currently open.
All briefings will be streamed on AAS’s website, accessible to registered journalists. During the five-day meeting, NASA scientists and their colleagues will present briefings on noteworthy discoveries — made possible by NASA’s astrophysics spacecraft — including the detection of unusually bright young galaxies, new gravitational lens findings, and black hole events in dwarf galaxies.
SSERVI Director Yvonne Pendleton and husband Dale Cruikshank will present a poster titled “Interstellar Organics, the Solar Nebula, and Saturn’s Satellite Phoebe” at the American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting on January 9th, 2014. Download a full-resolution pdf [22 MB] of the poster here.
