Because grad students don’t procrastinate enough…

We have more University of Virginia Astronomy tweeters! A few I’ve had to pester, most came here on their own. They all have such lovely stories to tell, and I’d recommend following them to anyone! They are all listed at UVa-Astro.

We have my officemate, @demessieres, a sweet, lovely geek who is just about at the finish line for her thesis and currently looking for a job relating to science communication. (Hint: She’s brilliant at it.) I used to share an office with @privong, who is always tweeting from his exciting travels, and @astroknots, a kick-ass radio astronomer who also knits like a fiend. Then there is the unstoppable @rareflwr41. If you are involved in astronomy or science education and haven’t heard of her already, you will. My dear friend @astrogailis is crazy busy making a brand new research instrument called APOGEE work, which you’ll hear more about soon. @mickeyj26 isn’t technically at UVa anymore, now a post-doc in Boulder, CO, but he’s still part of the family. And our newest to join is @astro_sailor, who has been watching twitter from the sidelines (aka twit-stalking) for a while, until I bugged the crap out of him to make a damn account already.

Much science and silliness is sure to ensue. Because we don’t have enough to distract us, right?

Thanks for letting me brag about my awesome friends!

    Umm… Your Discovery News and SheThought links on the side appear to be severely jacked. Like stretched out so you can’t read them. Maybe it’s just my browser, but you should look into that…

      Oh noes! What browser are you using? Looks ok on my version of Firefox…

    The links look all stretched out on mine too, using Chrome.

    This is great – who wouldn’t want to follow UVa astronomy tweeps? Thanks for the list!
