STARMEN at the American Astronomical Society

STARMEN screened at the 229th meeting of the American Astronomical Society January 4 and Nick and Alison were on hand for a Q&A as guests of the meeting. There were many moving moments: the highlights were as always, the comments from young students inspired by the film and the story of friendship and research-as-adventure as they begin their own careers; students and colleagues of Wal who recalled observing runs with him and the discussions of baseball, sumo wrestling, wine, good food and music that took as much priority as the observing; and fans of the film who often wanted to know how the it came about, and to share their appreciation for its themes. Many DVDs were autographed.
