International Year of Astronomy press conference at AAS, featuring Galaxy Zoo, coming very soon!
Happening soon here at the AAS meeting…
In a little over an hour, there will be a Galaxy Zoo press conference announcing to the community a new discovery that you have helped make. Many of you have heard about this one in the process of the research coming together, but it is an exciting result.
As always, Astronomy Cast LIVE will be broadcasting the press conference live from here in Pasadena. Here is the link to the live broadcast, which starts at 10:30 AM U.S. Pacific time:
During the conference, you will be able to chat, and someone will be on hand to answer any questions that you ask about the research.
After the press conference ends, we will save a recording of the broadcast and keep it available on the same site.
In case any of you have as much trouble as I do with converting time zones in your head (I have missed many a teleconference due to miscalculations), here is the time that it will appear in a major city hopefully near where you are (ordered east to west):
