is this week. First in-person meeting that my entire research group is attending. I am looking forward to hearing all the cool astronomy and planetary science research being done in the UK.

I appreciate having the ability to in-person meetings and getting the ability to have conversations outside the meeting located outside in the fresh air for maximal COVID safety.

Very glad to hear that the upcoming Vera C. Rubin Observatory Project and Community Workshop will now be mandating mask wearing based on the success of at minimizing spread. project.lsst.org/meetings/rubi
