Tomorrow's Asteroseismology Webinar

Piggybacking off of Tim's post: Our guest presenter for tomorrow's webinar is Conny Aerts, one of the founders of the field of asteroseismology. We're extremely fortunate to have her!

I spoke with Prof. Aerts today, and she's planning to begin with an introduction to asteroseismology, then lead into a discussion of gravito-inertial asteroseismology (a new method which her group has been using to study deep internal rotational and chemical mixing). Prof. Aerts is a great speaker, and I have no doubt that tomorrow's webinar is going to be among our best. If you have a chance to attend, do it!

I am unable to attend tomorrows webinar due to being outside of the house. I hope the recording will be made available on the AAVSO Youtube channel.

A link to the recording would be appreciated if available.
