The 2019 meeting of the High Energy Astrophysics Division (HEAD) of the American Astronomical Society is happening this week. At this meeting, there are 34 poster presentations (e.g., enclosed figure) and 12 oral presentations of NICER data. The presentations spanned a wide swath of topics that NICER pursues on the ISS, including stellar flares, neutron star science, and black hole science.
