Congratulations to Dr. Charles Vaughan on being published in the most recent volume of The Astronomical Journal. Dr. Vaughan graduated from Mississippi State University in 2015 with a Ph.D. in Applied Physics. His dissertation focused on the gaseous coma of the Hartley 2 comet. Hartley 2 is an active comet that was visited a few years ago by NASA in an unmanned space flyby mission. Dr. Vaughan’s research on Hartley 2 was published in an article entitled Jet Morphology and Coma Analysis of Comet 103P in the November edition of The Astronomical Journal.
