Greetings from Germany
During the quiet stasis that has been my blog of late, I have packed up my things and moved to a new apartment in the town of Rockwall, Texas, just outside of Dallas. There I will start my new job next week. More on that in week or so.
Having been in my new digs for three full days, it was time to pack my suitcase and fly to Germany. This coming week, the 17th bi-annual Euorpean White Dwarf Workshop will be held in Tübingen, Germany. Virtually everyone who works on white dwarf stars will be here talking about their research during this conference.
I missed the last workshop, held in Barcelona in 2008, as I had an observing run with the Keck telescope at the same time. So it will be nice to reconnect with many colleagues for the first time in four years.
So, dear readers, after two months of near silence from me, you are about to be pounded by a week's worth of white dwarf research news. Thanks for hanging in there.
