SOFIA Community Forum (SCF) Tele-Talks are colloquia presented over the telephone, with slides distributed ahead of time. The talks are targeted broadly towards members of the astronomy community who are interested in SOFIA science and in the current and potential scientific capabilities of the observatory. The talks are held approximately twice a month on Wednesdays at 9:00 AM (PST). The series is being organized by Dan Lester. For information on how to participate in the teletalks, please check the SOFIA Tele-Talk page.
