UKIRT output : best ever

Just had a fun day in Milton Keynes. No, really. I have been here today giving a seminar but also had some very interesting chats, and got a tour of the Planetary Sciences Research Institute, where they have lots of fun kit. I must admit I was a bit perturbed when Simon Green showed me a historical piece of equipment in a glass case and said that it had Colin Pillinger’s lip marks all over it. He then explained that he meant that Colin had blown the glass tubes himself.

Anyhoo, got back to my hotel to find a most marvelous email from Gary Davis, Director of JAC. It seems that UKIRT, that ancient useless telescope that clearly we should have closed by now, produced more papers last year than ever before. Check it out here.

Hem. Just a tad to do with UKIDSS of course…

    I hope it continues to have a big output. I suspect that when VISTA processing has settled down and more data from there becomes publicly available that will take some of the publications away. It is of course possible that it will add to UKIDSS related publications, e.g. new luminosity functions of galaxies comparing to the UKIDSS results. High redshift samples of QSOs or low mass stars, with combined UKIDSS and VISTA samples.

    Dear Andy XL,

    I just wanted to tell you how much I like your Microsoft Office Spreadsheet program. It’s much better than anything you can find on a Mac.

    Yours sincerely,

    Mrs Trellis
