Day 41: Astrophysics research

Screen Shot 2012 10 16 at 12 01 44 AM

After a great meeting with an astrophysics professor at a nearby university a few weeks back, I’ve assembled a group of students who are interested in getting involved with an original scientific research project. We had our first meeting on Sunday and drew 6 participants—3 boys and 3 girls.

We’re beginning, as most research does by trying to make sense of a pretty massive 50 page reference paper on low mass brown dwarf starts that the professor gave us.
