It was a real pleasure to present my research for the Michana Astro Society (MAS). Two other astrophysics graduate students joined me and we were able to meet the members of the society as well as hear their schedule for some opportunities for the ND astrophysics students to do outreach and get involved in the upcoming astronomy events.
I was really impressed and surpirsed by how tough the MAS questions were. Some questions about the star forming regions I have yet to fully study, some about the nature of the galaxies, and some about the connections of this work to dark matter, cosmology, and galactic evolution. I couldn’t have enjoyed presenting more and am so thankful for the invitation.
As we’re all gearing up for the Transit of Venus in June, it’s exciting to hear the plans that the local astronomers and groups are preparing. I know we’ll be collaborating and working with them again soon!
