The results are in: as of this morning, there is a clear winner in the voting for the first Astronomy Journal Club meeting:
- Thursday: 19 votes
- Sunday: 9 votes
- Friday: 8 votes
The first meeting of the Astronomy Twitter Journal Club will therefore be Thursday 16th June at 8 p.m. UK time (7 p.m. UT) , giving everyone just over a week to read the paper. We understand this day/date won’t work for everyone, but we hope lots of you will be able to attend. We can always vary the days if there is sufficient demand – there are plenty of papers to discuss.
Check here to see the meeting time in lots of different time zones.
The first paper will be “Gamma Rays From The Galactic Center and the WMAP Haze” (Hooper & Linden, 2010). It was the first suggestion we got (thanks Colin Stuart); it’s nice and short, but there’s lots of scope for discussion.
