Pictures from AAS

The AAS meeting just ended, and in a few minutes I’ll be giving Lucy from the Zoo Education Team a ride to Caltech, which is just down the street. Georgia sent me some photos from the three Galaxy Zoo education posters that we presented here.

Here is my poster, describing the irregular galaxies project:

Jordan's poster about the irregulars project

Here is Pamela’s poster describing the results of our survey into the reasons you participate in Galaxy Zoo:

And, last but not least, here is Georgia’s poster describing our plans for future user testing of the Zoo 2 website:

It was a very successful meeting, and a lot of people came by the poster to ask questions or share their own results.

I’m headed back home at 11 PM tonight. It’s been a great trip, but I’m looking forward to going home!

    Awesome! Well done guys! And Pamela’s talk was great too.

    May we see PDFs or similar of the posters? Pretty pretty please? I especially want to read what you’ve written about our irregulars project, after answering all those questions about it! 😀

    After watching the webcasts of both sessions where Pamela spoke about the Zoo, I was struck with a major difference between GZ and some of the other Citizen Science efforts described. This seems to be more internally organize and internally-driven than the others. Zoo participants have had a remarkable effect not just on the science goals, but on how the whole effort has been organized (it’s not too much to say “self-organizing”). Peas, irregulars, the merger-checking interface…

    This bunch is famous. I just heard from an astronomer commissioning a new camera on a large telescope that should be very good for narrow-band imaging of emission-line sources – he wondered what he could look at for the Zoo. I sent a list of fifty objects for starters.
