For those members who have the June 2018 issue of “Sky and Telescope” look at
two articles. The first article is on pages 8 and 9 under the topic COSMOLOGY
with the title “Signal from First Stars Suggests Primordial Chill.” The article
refers to the EDGES (Experiment to Detect the Global Epoch of Reionization
Signature) Project headed by Judd Bowman of Arizona State University. Tom
Mozdzen, the speaker at the PAS October 2018 meeting, is one of the scientists
who worked on this project and his presentation will be on the EDGES Project.
I attended Judd Bowman’s presentation in April on the EDGES Project and his
presentation was excellent. He made the science behind the project
understandable and the project and all its problems very interesting. I
recommend every one who can attend the October presentation to attend.
The second article is titled “Space Rock Rendezvous” and is on pages 22 through
28. The article describes two missions to two different asteroids from two
countries. The first mission described is the Japanese Hayabusa 2 mission to
the asteroid Ryugu. The second mission is the American Osiris-REX mission to
Bennu. One of the scientists on the project team is Dolores Hill from Arizona
State University. She gave an excellent presentation to PAS several years ago
on the Osiris-REX project.
I think both of these articles are interesting and have relevance to PAS
speakers and the kind of speakers PAS would like to have.
