Second Week on the New Job: life beyond ALMA

Second week at the new job. As a general purpose monkey versatile astronomer, I was thrown two new projects pretty much immediately. Welcome to the Jungle high-redshift Universe!

It is actually quite interesting. Trouble is that is feels like one of those things that should not take a a lot of time...and yet it does. Re-learning galfit for example...

Meanwhile, I thought of an idea to work on S4G. And in a brief email exchange, this idea was indeed vetted as worthwhile. Ho hm.

Wrote up my LEAPS project. It will be fun to have a student next summer.

But the highlight of the day was the family visiting (together with bagles for lunch).
