The Astro2010 panels are underway. Draft schedules in PDF form can be found at the Astro2010 site.
I’m currently sitting in the Optical and Infrared astronomy from the ground panel, where TMT is presenting. It’s tempting to try and live-blog this sort of event, but 1) I’m not sure how the NRC staff would feel about that, and b) I’m not sure how interesting that’d be anyway. I imagine most people reading live-blogs right now are reading about the latest iPhone.
In any event, I’ll write up some blog posts and informational emails about the panels and my impressions, as well as link to any presentations that are made public. For example, if the powerpoint presentations made by each project are made available on the NRC site, I’ll be sure to link to those.Tags: AAS214, Astro2010, Decadal survey, OIR, Pasadena, PPP, program prioritization
