high purity

Schiminovich made a bunch of changes to our data extraction from the GALEX time-domain data, and now we get a very high purity sample of transits in the white dwarf population. This is very good; we are ready to clean up, run on everything, and write a paper! Clean up includes improving our likelihood ratio calculations, and including the FUV data along with the NUV data.

In the late afternoon, Bolton (Utah) gave a great talk about his gravitational lens sample (SLACS), and all the great astrophysics he and his collaborators have done with it. He is doing more now with SDSS-III BOSS.
