Between my daughter wedding and my trip back to Nebraska, I’ve been a little too busy to update the blog as often as I’d like. So let’s correct that.

Who remembers second place? It’s a problem that plagues anyone who isn’t the biggest or fastest or shiniest. In today’s episode of 365 Days of Astronomy, we look at the second largest object in the Asteroid Belt –¬†Vesta.

Dr. Kasey Wagoner

Congratulations to Kasey Wagoner for recieving his Ph.D in physics from Washington University in St. Louis this spring. Dr.  Wagoner received his BS in physics here at EIU. He will be spending the next two years as a post-doctoral fellow in the physics department at Washington University. He was in my freshman astronomy class in 2001 when I managed to convince him that physics and astronomy were a lot more fun than accounting! The smile proves I was right!
