In which a television broadcast occurs

XWCL member Logan Pearce, connoisseur of fine brews and science communication, is an organizer of the local Space Drafts (Astronomy on Tap Tucson) event. The special edition Space Drafts talks on the soon-to-be-launched (really) JWST mission drew attendees from around Tucson, including reporters from local news channel KGUN.

Anyone who stayed up late on Tuesday to watch the news saw Logan Pearce’s television debut:

The segment was reused in the morning news, too, judging from this email from beloved departmental program coordinator Michelle Cournoyer:

Good Morning Logan,

While I was getting ready for work this morning, I saw you on the Channel 9 news, very excited about Space Drafts and the JWST upcoming launch. Very cool! I hope you’ll remember the little people,like me, now that you’re a celebrity 🙂
