Dr. Chen Heinrich presented a hyperwall talk at the 240th American Astronomical Society Meeting in Pasadena, CA on June 15th, 2022.  Taking place at the large NASA booth, Dr. Heinrich’s talk focused on SPHEREx’s three primary science themes of cosmic inflation, the evolution of galaxies and structure in the universe, and the trail of water ice in the Milky Way’s interstellar medium, as well as on the technical implementation of the project.  The talk was well received, and helped the wider astronomical community understand SPHEREx’s scientific goals, implementation, and the wide range of data products that will be released throughout the lifetime of the mission.
