Welcome to another edition of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL) newsletter.
We had our usual quota of successes in research and love (we've got items about two marriages), but we've also had a very sad event---Professor Donald Hunten, a long-time LPL faculty member and the person who (literally) wrote the book on planetary atmospheres, died in December.
The intent of this newsletter is to help you catch up with your LPL family. So if you haven't heard from many of your fellow LPL veterans lately, they probably haven't heard from you either, so please consider dropping us a line so that we can include something about you in the next newsletter.
Enjoy, and we hope to see you back at LPL again soon.
