Never let it be said that you can’t teach an old blog new tricks. In the interests of broadening our fan appeal and staying au courant, Cosmic Variance is bringing in a new contributor. Julianne Dalcanton has been a longtime commenter, and is also an astrophysicist at the University of Washington. We’ve set up her own author page and everything. Everyone welcome Julianne! In the immortal words of Pink, we better get this party started.
