Covering the European Geosciences Conference in Vienna

Topics: events and announcements, fun

The 2013 European Geosciences Union conference will be held in Vienna, April 7th - 12th (i.e. next week). I will be there, representing the Society as part of the press. Watch for periodic science highlights from the conference throughout the week, as well as the latest news on JUICE and other European missions.

As mentioned in previous posts, next week will be dominated by the release of the President's budget request (at least here in the U.S.) You and I are fortunate to have Van Kane joining us as a guest-blogger to help parse through the details of the budget when it comes out on Wednesday (he also manages the highly-interesting Future Planetary Exploration blog).

I'm also extending an invitation to any Planetary Society member who lives in Vienna (or attendee of EGU) to contact me next week. Reach me by email at

Casey, I have to say... other than astronaut/pilot you have right now the greatest job! Enjoy the trip!

@Bob: I don't disagree. But it's all because we have such strong support from our members that I can have a job at all. It's never far from my mind :) Thanks for the note.

The collection of meteorites is also worth a trip. Last year it was closed due to renovation. :-(
