As we become more official (we are recognized by academic departments and the JHU Graduate Representative Organization), the JHU Astrobiology Club is considering changing its name to the JHU Astrobiology Forum. But we’re open to other ideas. We’ve considered things like Association and Society, but I favor something that cuts down on the syllables (astrobiology already has 6)! Plus I think Forum conveys our objective to foster discussion of current research and promote multidisciplinary education. And I think it forms a nice complement to the Institute for Planets and Life, which is the organization of professors and research groups at JHU and the Space Telescope Science Institute that gives us support and with which we hope to keep close and productive ties. Comments?
