Socorro Wednesday Lunch Schedule - 2016

by Christopher Hales last modified Dec 09, 2016

Wednesday Lunch is a rather informal lunchtime get-together with pizza to hear visitors' results as well as what staff are doing. If you or one of your visitors would like to speak at Wednesday Lunch, please contact Chris Hales (username chales) at username@nrao.edu.

Wednesday Lunch is held in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (DSOC) in Socorro, New Mexico from noon until 1:00 PM unless indicated in green. All are welcome.
