This was a very cool paper on YORP and asteroid Gault. I was fortunate to be able to provide a perspective in this Newsweek article.
We have returned from the 50th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference! It was a great conference, highlights include a screening of the Apollo 11 movie (it was spectacular), major announcements, meeting up with old friends, lots of fantastic science talks (it’s hard to pick a favorite but this is certainly a contender), and many discussions about future science projects. It’s good to be back in St. Louis though, and back to teaching!
