No, that’s not a typo in the title. Next week marks the 41st Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, which made me a bit nostalgic about my LPSC experience, ten years ago next month. After my summer internship in 1999, I presented my research at my first (and only!) poster session the next spring, at the 31st LPSC.
So………… here I am, with my poster:
I think it’s rather pretty, for a poster. :D The session went well, but it was pretty nerve-wracking. I had no idea what to wear to a poster session, so I bought that little suit jacket and skirt (and was a bit overdressed as a result.) Still, I survived my first poster — and the conference was a blast.
I’m no longer “in” science, as it were, but I still like to keep up as I can on the latest in lunar studies. I’ll always love it, even if I’m not active in the field. I’d love to go to LPSC again, just for interest — and hey, there’s always interesting things to do in Houston!
