## Capra 25

** Published:**

This week I attended the 25th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity at University College Dublin which was my first in person conference in over two years! It emphasised how useful the small discussions can be and was very useful to talk to other people from my field in a such a way that had been impossible with the pandemic.

## Sagittarius A*

** Published:**

Five years, petabytes of data and many hours of computing time has gone into imaging the supermassive black hole at the centre of our own Milky Way galaxy. Congratulations to the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration on this amazing feat!

## Viva voce

** Published:**

Today was a remarkable day. My PhD viva consisted of a 45 minute presentation on my thesis followed by the standard Q&A session. Profs Carlos Sopuerta and Oscar Campos-Dias were very diligent examiners and asked many thought provoking questions about everything from the history of self-force formulation right through to my future plans. To be truly honest it felt just like casually discussing research for a couple of hours rather than an examination. I actually enjoyed it! The best part of the day though was when I got to come back into the room and was told that I had passed with no corrections!
