See any news stories on astronomy in the paper or on TV this week? This week in Minneapolis, many astronomers from across the continent are gathered for the summer meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS). These meetings are held twice a year, usually in early January and early June. Astronomers at the meeting give short talks on their research, display posters with new results from their projects, renew friendships and collaborations, and live, sleep and breathe astronomy. The AAS also takes this opportunity to issue press releases on cool new research.
