My first PhD defense! Today started with a quick meeting with Bob. Afterwards, Alexa and I worked on Joel's project: collecting data from a database and generate graphs (using our own code) such as Temperature vs. Spectral Type. At 10:00, we went to Marcus' PhD defense, where he gave a presentation until 11:00. Marcus, who works with Ben at the LAMA, spent five years researching Planetary Nebulae. The presentation was extremely interesting, and I could see myself doing research like that. After that, I helped Yiqun with his programming (he is making a 3D camera). His group had issues with their Python code, so Bob asked me to help out. After an hour of debugging, we found and fixed the problem. It is nice to know that my code is already a little famous! For lunch, me and some other interns played cards (again...). From 1:00 until 3:30, I stayed with Yiqun's group in the Freshman Imaging Lab (I had brought some cookies from the Astronomy Meeting). Then Matt stopped by to say good-bye (he's heading back to Texas). For the next 4 hours, I copied the data from the database into an Excel spreadsheet, as I wanted to finish in one day. Altogether, it was a very tiring day.
