New Cometary Insights from the Close Approach of 46P/Wirtanen: A Symposium in Celebration of Michael A'Hearn



August 6-8, 2019

Edward St. John Learning & Teaching Center
University of Maryland, College Park, MD

This meeting is a celebration of Mike's work in cometary science, and his spirit will be reflected in the tone of the gathering. While the presentations will be primarily about comet science, there will be some non-scientists joining us and more are welcome. Our intention is to disseminate results from the Wirtanen Campaign but also to have fun in the process.

Schedule

Oral sessions will be held Tue (Aug 6) morning and afternoon, Wed (Aug 7) morning, Thu (Aug 8) morning and afternoon. An excursion is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

Organizers

Tony Farnham, Lori Feaga, Jessica Sunshine, Elizabeth Warner
