Second LOFT Science Meeting
I'm in Toulouse this week to attend the second science meeting dedicated to ESA's proposed Large Observatory for X-ray Timing (LOFT) mission. Almost a year has passed since the last meeting, and detailed studies by the various science teams in that time have begun to clarify the observational prospects offered by the mission. I presented a poster describing some simulations of spectral features which might be observed from thermonuclear bursts.
