Greetings from our at-home workspaces! Hope everyone is being productive and staying safe during this second online uni phase. To introduce ourselves, we are Thanvi and Yajnesh, the new Co-editors for Jeremy and we’re excited to be back this semester (although a bit late) with piping hot new content! Let us introduce our new writers Alex, Alice, and Vedant.

A shout-out to our very own Professor Iver Cairns, the team lead for satellite CUAVA-1.

Congratulations to the team!
