Congratulations to GSU graduate student Bokyoung Kim for being one of the six grad student winners of the Chambliss Poster Award at the 231st AAS Winter Meeting.
Her poster, “Kinematics of Local, High-Velocity K dwarfs in the SUPERBLINK Proper Motion Catalog,” discusses the selection of >300,000 K dwarfs in the Galactic disk and local halo, and from their kinematics suggests the presence of a new halo stream.
2018 marks the third year in a row that a GSU student has been awarded a Chambliss Prize. Zach Hartman won in 2017 and Michele Silverstein in 2016. Congrats GSU Astronomy!
