I observed from afar via their livestreams and recordings, and thoroughly enjoyed two space-centric talks. Both are linked below, I hope you find them as interesting!

Two presenters, lk and panic, walk us through the construction and design considerations of the ELT, which will be a… big scope.
How Many Planets in Our Solar System? Glad You Asked!
Michael Büker gives a fascinating and well researched talk on the progress of planetary identification through the past several hundred years.
