Tentative Agenda

Our next meeting will be held:

Friday, July 10, 2020
12:30 - 2:00 PM
Location: Zoom

Featured Presentation:

The X-ray Sky in High Focus:
Twenty Years of Science with the Chandra X-ray Observatory

Daniel Patnaude Astrophysicist at the Harvard Astronomical Observatory

Abstract: Since its launch in the summer of 1999, the Chandra X-ray Observatory has provided a stunning view of some of the most energetic processes in the Universe. In this talk, I will present an overview of how high energy astrophysicists detect X-rays, and discuss the unique capabilities of the Chandra X-ray Observatory. I will then highlight many of the remarkable and noteworthy results from this NASA flagship mission, and discuss what is in store for Chandra and the X-ray astronomy community in the coming decade.

Tentative Agenda

We unfortunately cannot offer our traditional free lunch, and we are not quite ready to reintroduce the networking portion of the meeting, but we do hope to hear from our subgroups and new folks before our featured speaker.
