NRAO and GBO Results Presented at Multiple AAS 242 Press Conferences


New scientific results from the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), the Very Large Array (VLA), and the Green Bank Observatory (GBO) will be revealed at multiple press conferences during the 242nd meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) from June 5-7, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The AAS meeting includes a series of press conferences based on a range of themes. Presentations will highlight new research, including uncovering properties of early universe dwarf galaxies, a peek at radio images of the fastest nova, and how star formation is triggered by an interaction in the Nessie Nebula.

Press conferences will be held in person during the conference, and streamed live on the AAS Press Office YouTube Channel.

Note: Each press conference consists of a panel of scientists presenting 4-5 unique scientific results. The number listed in parentheses indicates the order of presentation for the listed result.

All press conferences are listed and will occur in Mountain Time.
