AMERICAN ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
JANUARY 7-11, 2001

About 2500 scientists were expected for the joint meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center, in San Diego, California on January 7-11, 2001.

Counting the AAPT attendees, the event, the 197th national meeting of the AAS, was the Society's largest ever.

7. Live from San Diego - it's the AAS!
It's 9a.m on Monday morning, 30 minutes before the opening of the 197th meeting of the American Astronomical Society. Pictured in this scene is the Chandra X-Ray Center booth. The plasma screen, which will be showing a Chandra video and images, is ready to go. Chandra people are working on the finishing touches, such as hooking up computers on which we'll demonstrate the Chandra analysis software and unpacking the handouts and cd-roms to be distributed.
