Prof. Alex Szalay from JHU will give us a lecture on next Thursday (June 17) morning at 10:00AM.
Alex initiated "Virtual Observatory" about a dozen of years ago, and leads the NVO project (http://www.us-vo.org/behindthescenes/who.cfm). I call him Father of Virtual Observatory. The collaboration and friendship between him and Dr.
Jim Gray has become a legend in the community. Live webcast will be available for the lecture so that VO fans outside of
NAOC can share it with us.
