The American Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of the oldest learned societies in the United States of America.
The American Astronomical Society (AAS, sometimes spoken as "double-A-S") is an American society of professional astronomers and other interested individuals, headquartered in Washington, DC.
An astronomer is a scientist in the field of astronomy who concentrates their studies on a specific question or field outside the scope of Earth.
The Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) is an American scientific and educational organization, founded in San Francisco on February 7, 1889.
The Catherine Wolfe Bruce Gold Medal is awarded every year by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific for outstanding lifetime contributions to astronomy.
Diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs) are absorption features seen in the spectra of astronomical objects in the Milky Way and other galaxies.
The Henry Draper Medal is awarded every 4 years by the United States National Academy of Sciences "for investigations in astronomical physics".
The Henry Norris Russell Lectureship is awarded each year by the American Astronomical Society in recognition of a lifetime of excellence in astronomical research.
In astronomy, the interstellar medium (ISM) is the matter and radiation that exists in the space between the star systems in a galaxy.
Isotopes are variants of a particular chemical element which differ in neutron number.
Merrill is a lunar impact crater.
The Moon is an astronomical body that orbits planet Earth and is Earth's only permanent natural satellite.
The Mount Wilson Observatory (MWO) is an astronomical observatory in Los Angeles County, California, United States.
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is a United States nonprofit, non-governmental organization.
Nucleosynthesis is the process that creates new atomic nuclei from pre-existing nucleons, primarily protons and neutrons.
R Andromedae (R And) is a Mira-type variable star in the constellation Andromeda.
The slow neutron-capture process or s-process is a series of reactions in nuclear astrophysics that occur in stars, particularly AGB stars.
An S-type star (or just S star) is a cool giant with approximately equal quantities of carbon and oxygen in its atmosphere.
Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation.
Technetium is a chemical element with symbol Tc and atomic number 43.
The University of California (UC) is a public university system in the US state of California.
A variable star is a star whose brightness as seen from Earth (its apparent magnitude) fluctuates.
