Please join the Local Group Lunch Fridays at 1pm in CafeCon (conference room next to Azafran, the STScI cafeteria).

We normally have a guest speaker for ~30 minutes sometimes followed by a ~30 minute discussion of a recent paper led by a local (STScI / JHU).

If you have any guests that would like to give a talk in the journal club, or if you would like to discuss any relevant recent paper, please contact us.
