Ms. Dowdy has just finished reading the Introduction to Galaxies by Spark and Gallagher and am working on a summary of this book. Since there is a lot of information, she plans to confine her summary to the things that are pertinent to her project. In addition, Greg Rudnick sent the team research articles he wanted them to look over after their introductory meeting in Washington in January. Ms. Dowdy has done this as well and plans to compile the relevant information from the book with this. Finally, Ms. Dowdy is working through the book she and her team were given in Washington, "Infrared Astronomy".
Ms. Dowdy has introduced her students to the idea of the project. and has two students who are interested. After she compiles all the information from the books and sources she is still working on, Ms. Dowdy plans to meet with them and work through the things they need to know.
