Welcome to a new iteration of the LPL Newsletter. As well as the semiannual newsletter that includes all of the news about the LPL family (who’s new, who’s leaving, who’s won an award), we'll be putting out a monthly newsletter that is more focused. This version will primarily highlight news stories about work going on at LPL and the calendar of upcoming events that we believe will be of general interest to our friends—things like outreach events and spacecraft milestones. If you aren’t on the mailing list for our newsletter already, and would like to receive this (as well as the more detailed newsletter, announcements of events, and the occasional other announcement or invitation), please let us know by emailing
Undergraduate (PTYS minor) Adriana Mitchell already has her sights set on worlds far across the solar system. But right now, thanks to a virtual telescope stretching across 2,500 miles, she is poised to find answers to questions about the sun that have eluded scientists for decades.
