time domain

Adam Myers (UIUC) showed up today for a week of work; we spent (too little) time today planning what it is we are going to accomplish by Friday. At the same time, several of my students are writing papers and I am getting way behind on comments and feedback. In the afternoon there was a nice talk by Suvi Gezari (JHU) about shock breakout SNe and tidal disruption events discovered in GALEX repeat-visit data. I had seen these results before, but she shocked us (or me at least) by noting that there are essentially no plans for future surveys in the ultraviolet. I knew this but it really is crazy to place all of our (community's) bets on the infrared. That's so 2006!
