NRAO DSOC Wednesday Lunch Series

Wednesday Lunch is a rather informal lunchtime get-together with pizza to hear visitors' results as well as what the staff is doing. If you or one of your visitors would like to speak at Wednesday Lunch, please contact Betsy Mills (username bmills) at

Wednesday Lunch is held in the auditorium of the NRAO Pete V. Domenici Science Operations Center in Socorro, New Mexico from noon until 1:00 PM unless indicated in red.
