“We selected this field to test the algorithm because quite frankly I just like the name of it???”
I have arbitrary feelings about some of our fields (patches of sky the collaboration’s observed) based purely on the name. Completely independent of the importance of these patches of sky to the astronomical community.
I really like Lockman-SWIRE but think UDS sucks. Idk why?
I like ELAIS-N1 as I did an undergrad project on that field, but felt aggrieved when I was doing something with ELAIS-S1 the other month because it felt like I was cheating.
I have a love-hate relationship with FLS because of the cirrus, it’s interesting because of the cirrus but I hate it because of the cirrus… at least that one has a reason I suppose.
COSMOS is okay…
They’re all here, in case you want to know where they are on the sky.
Just submitted an abstract to give a poster talk at a conference in October :wiggles:. I could have asked for a talk but it lends itself better to small chats.
Also after the big discussion on the astronomers fb group about plagiarism (yup, there’s a fb group for professional astronomers), where people were recounting stories of having their ideas nicked by other ruthless astronomers, I’m really paranoid, so I’m not going to post the abstract up. Not that I’m big-headed enough to think it’s that good someone will steal it, but I need the publication, so.
My perfectly scheduled day today as planned:
11:30 - 12:15 : supervision about thesis plan
12:15 - 13:00 : type plan up ready for annual review later this week
13:00 - 14:00 : group lunch
14:00 - 14:30 : CRB check for public engagement
14:30 - 15:30 : chat about making science communication videos
After unfortunate cancellations what’s actually happening:
11:30 - 14:00 : ??? work ??? food?????? on our own?????? sad???
14:00 - 14:45 : rescheduled supervision that might be late due to meeting
Thursday afternoon: chat about videos
CRB check : ??????? more sad???
