Margaret M. Hanson, associate editor-in-chief of The Astronomical Journal, cited three recent scientific papers that highlight the diversity of research being conducted by the Galactic community.
One of the featured papers detailed research by James M. DeBuizer, SOFIA instrument scientist, and William D. Vacca, SOFIA senior science advisor, into the mystery of "Green Fuzzy" emissions in star-forming regions. DeBuizer and Vacca's research paper (Direct Spectroscopic Identification of the Origin of "Green Fuzzy" Emission in Star-forming Regions) was presented at the 219th meeting of the American Astronomical Society, held in January 2012 in Austin, Texas.
