This may qualify as not research, but this morning Schiminovich and I discussed the pros and cons of making a pitch to the decadal survey, the astronomy-wide priority-setting exercise.
At lunch, Kathryn Johnston (Columbia), Joo Heon Yoon (Columbia), and I discussed Yoon's simulations of satellites disrupting tidally in a galaxy in the presence of substructure. This work complements my analytical work on the subject and there may be a collaboration possible.
Wu, Schiminovich and I spent the afternoon looking at the high-resolution (for Spitzer, anyway) Spitzer spectroscopy of normal galaxies from our S5 project. Many of the galaxies have clearly visible narrow lines, even with our current quick-and-dirty reductions.
