Ron Gilliland (BA: Astronomy, Math, Physics, 1974) presented an invited talk at the Summer 2011 AAS meeting in Boston on the extraordinary achievements of the Kepler Space Telescope in the field of asteroseismology. After 23 years at STScI , Ron is exercising an option to "retire" and become an Astronomer Emeritus starting June 4th. His plan, though, is merely to take this as an opportunity to work full time on Kepler, doing so with partial grant support.
