Galaxy Zoo Goes to Bristol
Slightly short notice, but if you’re in or near Bristol, UK, there are two Galaxy Zoo talks taking place this Friday, 23rd January. They’re at the Bristol Astronomical Society, but anyone is welcome to attend.
One talk will be Rick Nowell, about the peas – which are becoming a remarkably large topic; more here, here and here – and one will be me be talking about Galaxy Zoo generally. It’s a “club night”, which means that several speakers will cover various topics. There will be professional and amateur astronomers in the audience, and I hope some members of the public such as you, too. We’re still debating on whether to podcast it or not . . .
The address is Bristol Grammar School, which is next to Bristol University, very near the centre. It starts at 7:15 p.m. and is free. We’ll meet in the Sixth Form Club. Rick very kindly sent me this map – Bristol Grammar School is right in the middle of it: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/university/maps/precinct.html
Very many thanks to the Bristol Astronomical Society for inviting me along, to zookeeper Bob for letting me pinch a few of his SDSS-related slides, to all of you for posting fabulous pictures and being such keen and inspiring citizen scientists for the last 18 months and thus giving me so much to talk about, and to Rick for taking a lot of trouble to arrange these talks.
Hope to see you there!
