Dr. Laurent Loinard, professor of astronomy at the Institute for Radio Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) is the guest speaker for the NRAO-Socorro colloquium. He is the P.I. of the VLBA project called the Gould’s Belt Distance Survey. His talk is titled "The Gould's Belt Distances Survey (GOBELINS)."
