I’ve been in the Bay Area for a week now, having attended the AGU Fall Meeting 2015! The conference was especially exciting with new results from New Horizons, the Dawn mission, the final low-altitude campaign of MESSENGER, and other planetary missions that I’ve been following.
The NASA Ames Space Academy also presented a poster on Monday, via which we productively interfaced with radar experts and interested geologists alike. I gave a talk on Thursday on my individual project from the Academy and met several researchers, familiar and unfamiliar, with whom I had great discussions on graduate school, topics in planetary research, and previous work.
Now I’m running to finish graduate apps as the year winds down, even as I’m struck with the urge to return to my poetry. It’s been a wild fall x
