Hoop house allows garden planting in February

Even outdoors the weather was warming up for winter in Vermont on Tuesday, February 13, and all agreed it felt “downright glorious” in the tropically-warm “hoop house” down by the campus farm and permaculture site, where a gaggle of Saint Michael’s College students joined mentor Kristyn Dumont Achilich ’05 in surprisingly active pre-spring stirrings for their year-round and expanding teaching-and-cultivation operation.

Fresh Hubble data in, O’Meara’s real fun begins

For the lucky handful of scientists who regularly use the Hubble Telescope to study galaxy and star formation – folks like astrophysicist John O’Meara of the Saint Michael’s College physics faculty – time is of the essence. That is to say, an essential piece of their research is eagerly-sought but limited time stargazing through the by-now venerable space telescope that NASA launched in 1990. It’s why O’Meara was thrilled back in June 2017 when he first learned from the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Maryland that 5 of 11 international team-science proposals that he is a part of – proposals requiring highly prized Hubble observation time -- had been granted as part of the telescope’s 25th, near-annual observational “Cycle” that is presently ongoing.
