Hanny's Voorwerp On Tour – Part 1

Yesterday Chris announced that Galaxy Zoo will be on The Sky At Night this weekend and that Patrick Moore interviewed me for that episode about the discovery of Hanny’s Voorwerp. As most of you probably know, we’ve been in the press a lot lately, and I’m keeping a list of relevant links on the forum.

Today I can announce that I’ll be a guest in the Dutch TV show ‘De Wereld Draait Door‘ (The World Keeps Turning) this Monday, (8th of September). It’s a well-known national and live daily talk show on channel ‘Nederland 3’ from 7.30 till 8.15pm (CEST). According to Wikipedia numbers show that it’s one of the most popular programmes on the channel.

So, tomorrow I’ll be travelling to the studios in Amsterdam and soon I’ll tell you all about part two of the ‘tour’.

    That’s great! Last week Vincent Icke, the well known Dutch cosmologist was guest in that program. And now you, Hanny. I suggest a new name for the program: The Universe Keeps Turning. 🙂 Hanny, succes!

    How does one pronounce ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ please?
    Unfortunately I cannot receive ‘Nederland 3’, but I
    hope all goes very well for you.

    Oh and you can watch the show afterwards on the website I posted the link of with ‘De Wereld Draait Door’. Under ‘uitzending gemist’. 😉

    Good luck Hanny; I’ll be watching tonight’s “Sky at Night” – but ‘De Wereld Draait Door‘ is beyond my linguistic capabilities! 🙂

  11. Jan Brandt says :

    Hi, watched “your” Sky at Night” just a few hours ago….and…ah…if they ever intend to put on our local Dutch Networks a TV-programme with the familiar sounding title “De Hemel bij nacht” with you as presenter(and Vincent Icke as YOUR sidekick!), please do us the favour and do’t say “NO”!
    If you ever get the chance…extend your classroom to 16.000.000 pupils!!
    Anyway,Excellent performance…if way to short!!
    “Tot vanavond”.. bij “De wereld draait door”…..leuk!!

  12. Eise says :

    I will watch it, good luck Hanny and enjoy it :). You may check the “De wereld draait door” on http://www.uizendinggemist.nl, you can watch it a day later. I will post the link when they put it online.

  13. Hanny says :

    Heh thanks, and OK, if… then I won’t say ‘NO’.. 😀

  14. Thomas J says :

    Go for it Hanny.

  15. Hanny says :

    Actually, that one was from last Friday. Here’s yesterdays (although the date says the 9th!). 😉


  16. Arjen says :

    Hi Hanny,

    cool to have seen you on TV. Great simplified explanation about it all, but that is what teachers do 😉
    Hope it gives a great spin-off to Galaxy Zoo or amateur astronomy in the Netherlands.
