SOFIA Community Forum (SCF) Tele-Talks are colloquia presented over the telephone, with slides distributed ahead of time. The talks are targeted broadly towards members of the astronomy community who are interested in SOFIA science and in the current and potential scientific capabilities of the observatory. The talks are held approximately once a month. The series is being organized by Dan Lester (Univ. of Texas, Austin). For information on how to participate in the teletalks, please check the SOFIA Tele-Talk page.

If you would like to be on the mailing list for this telecon, please contact Dan Lester.

Future Tele-Talks (Wednesdays 9:00 am PT, provisional schedule) may be found on the Events page (sort by Tele-Talks)

Archive of talks from January 2012 onward may be found by clicking on the year in the sidebar on the Events page and then sorting by Tele-Talks.
