Greetings from Ohio State

Today I am visiting the Department of Astronomy at the Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. I'm here to give a talk about my research and to visit with some old friends and acquaintances. When most people think of astronomy, they may think of Caltech, or Harvard, or one of the observatories in the southwest, but not Ohio State. However, the faculty and students here at Ohio State are top notch, doing lots of important research on the lives of stars and galaxies. And Ohio State is a partner in the Large Binocular Telescope, a new, big telescope in Arizona.

So, Ohio State has smart astronomers, and now they have a big telescope. We should rightly expect big things from Ohio State astronomy in the next several years.
