Today I spent the morning finishing downloading the HST images. I had a strawberry-mango smoothie at coffee-time which was amazing! However, I should probably choose something with caffeine in it because I can get really sleepy during the day. At lunchtime, we ate inside and discussed plans for having a breakfast tomorrow morning. I can't wait! We also signed up for what to bring to the cookout this Friday as well. In the afternoon, I downloaded the HST images onto another computer (an old mac) to use as a backup. However, the downloads take a longggg time so Dan (super-smart undergrad intern who I share a desk with) is letting me read his book, The Origin and Evolution of Planetary Nebulae, by Sun Kwok that he got from the library. A lot of it is quite confusing, but the parts I can decipher help me further understand PN and what I'm actually looking at in the images I work with.
