causal reasoning in astrophysics

At Astronomy meets Computer Vision meeting this morning, Fadely, Foreman-Mackey, and I spent a long time discussing with Schölkopf how we might try out some causal inference in astrophysics data sets. We didn't figure out the killer app, but we re-discussed some old things I have done in my life in galaxy evolution, where there are lots of correlations but little known when it comes to causality.
