NAM 2012: Namchester

NAM 2012

The National Astronomy Meeting is an annual astronomy conference hosted by the Royal Astronomical Society and a UK university. NAM 2012 is being held at The University of Manchester, in partnership with the Astronomische Gesellschaft. As this year's meeting is being held on The Jodcast's home turf, we decided to record and release a short episode for every day of the conference, bringing you a summary of the research presented that day. In the first episode, Libby reports on the opening of this joint UK-Germany meeting [00:00 - 11:59]. In the second episode, Jen comes out of retirement to provide highlights of day 2 [11:59 - 26:59]. In the third episode, Christina brings us interviews and press releases from day 3 [26:59 - 42:42]. In the fourth episode, Mark rounds up the meeting and reaction to it [42:42 - 74:57].
