Attending LPSC 2013

Just a quick note to announce that I am now planning to attend the first three days of the LPSC.  There are several people from my university (UND) attending, and I hope to take in as many oral presentations and posters on Venus as I can.

I've heard that WiFi will not be available and that cell service is spotty, but I'll do my best to blog a bit, and tweet at @VenusDispatches.

If you are not attending but want to be a part of things, some of the big events are being broadcast on Livestream:

  • Curiosity Rover Science Team Press Briefing (Monday, 3/18 12:00 noon CDT
  • Plenary Session Featuring Masursky Lecture by Dr. Elkins-Tanton (Monday, 1:30pm CDT)
  • NASA Headquarters Briefing (Monday, 5:30pm CDT
  • GRAIL/LRO Press Briefing (Tuesday, 12:00 noon CDT)
