@sylin I got hifi to work (VR in your laptop, 2D in the other one) but I think it may be more immersive to simply use Star Chart for both laptops — I’ve set that up for now (and bought a copy of Star Chart from the `kentronn` Steam account — $9.99)

HI Cordelia, are your CfA contacts working with any environmental justice groups? I'd love to connect some dots if possible, keep the tech from being isolated efforts~~~

Thinking about the natural parallels between Taiwan and Puerto Rico (and many of the Caribbean nations), and how both desperate and possible ground-up change is in the aftermath of last season’s storms:
