Tuesday AAS press conferences

By Phil Plait | June 2, 2008 10:41 pm

Just a heads-up for now: we will be streaming the press conferences from the AAS live on Tuesday. The first one is at 9:40 a.m. Central time, and the second will be noon Central time. I’ll be running the chat room for both events, and they’ll probably be on the Bad Astronomy UStream channel. I’ll have more shortly before we start, and the video will be embedded, so worst case is you can just come here to watch and listen. It’ll be a cool topic, I promise. :-)

  2. Steve Maran has now “authorized” me to disclose the headlines – but not the detailled topics or abstracts – of the three remaining press conference blocks, with 11 presentations in total:

    “The American Astronomical Society holds two press conferences on Tuesday, June 3 [...]

    In the opening press conference, WEIRD BINARY STARS, there are two
    reports [...] The event is at 9:40 AM CDT (10:40 AM EDT), ten
    minutes later than our usual first press conference of the day.

    In the second Tuesday press conference, on THE MILKY WAY, at 12 Noon
    CDT = 1:00 PM EDT, there are five reports [...]

    WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4

    9:30 AM Press Conference on Speculative Astrophysics” (with three reports).

    Happy guessing …

  4. So, no “Phoenix finds life on Mars” then. Pity…
