Short conversations today with Mei and Lang and Foreman-Mackey. Mei and I decided that we should do the continuum normalization that he is doing at the raw-data stage, before we interpolate the spectra onto the common wavelength grid. This should make the interpolation a bit safer, I think. Lang and I discussed DESI and he showed me some amazing images, plus image models from The Tractor. Foreman-Mackey and I discussed the relevance of his exoplanet research program to the NASA Origins program and the Great Observatories. Can anyone imagine why?
