"It's much easier to be critical than to be correct."
Benjamin Disraeli, in a speech to the House of Commons
The Star and Planet Formation Journal Club is an informal forum for
the CfA community where we discuss recent articles of interest in the
literature. Our principal focus is on star and planet formation,
although we also regularly discuss articles on the interstellar
medium. We will meet every Wednesday during the '10-'11 school year,
at 11:00 in M-340 (conference room on the third floor), 160 Concord Ave. [city
map & another].
Occasionally, because of space issues, we will meet in Phillips Auditorium
at 60 Garden St.
Coffee and cookies are provided, funded by passing the hat and some
wheedling. Generous donations may lead to sweeter provisions. If you
are looking for ideas for papers to present, a good place to start is
formation newsletter and astro-ph.
Judging by our
current attendence, we suggest that you make ~20 copies of the paper
and/or handout for distribution.
Please sign up and remember the
journal club motto: "It is easier to criticize than to be
correct." Anyone who can find the Latin translation of this
phrase will be rewarded with *extra free* coffee or cookies at the
next journal club.
