SOFIA: The Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) released new data from its recent Southern Hemisphere observations. The data reveal the structure of celestial magnetic fields in the star-forming region within the Tarantula Nebula known as 30 Doradus, or 30 Dor, at a scale that has never been seen before. The data set is now available to the scientific community to facilitate studies of how magnetic fields affect stars forming in nearby galaxies. NASA’s Ames Research Center manages the SOFIA program, science and mission operations in cooperation with the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) headquartered in Columbia, Maryland, and the German SOFIA Institute (DSI) at the University of Stuttgart. http://ow.ly/lXnp30lqIto

Inspiration and Exploration since 1968: In August 1985, David Gust and Jim Zimbelman, two LPI scientists in charge of the summer intern program, conducted an intern “mini-conference.” It was an opportunity for the interns to present their research to an audience of their colleagues, advisors, and other interested scientists and staff. The conference was a success and marked the beginning of the annual LPI summer intern conference. #LPI50 #anniversary #ThrowbackThursday
