I believe today roughly marked the mid-way point in this internship. Today I finished downloading the needed Radio and DSS images for Mark by lunch time. After lunch, I went to Building 75 with Mark to listen to a talk pertaining to "Planetary Nebulae and Radio Galaxies" and the simulation of such celestial bodies. Although it was a little difficult to understand the speaker's foreign accent, I thought the portion on Planetary Nebulae was very interesting and the portion on Radio Galaxies was less so. After the talk I went back to the Insight Lab with a new assignment, write a program that will compile the images I have worked with into a format to place in Mark's publication. This might take a while.
