WOW wonderful news enjoyed reading the Yale Press release!! Way to go Peas team.
What an amazing experience this has been: from a casual topic to an extraordinary paper by some extraordinary astronomers. I’m sure I don’t understand large parts of this paper yet, but it will be one paper that I’ll read and re-read for a very long time yet. Please, let me say thankyou to Carrie and Kevin for putting this together- yes with a lot of help- and for MAKING THE EFFORT. I’m sure all of the Peas collective are overwhelmed by the effort put in…Now I have to try and understand the paper! Citizen Science for ever! Awesome!!!!
YAY http://www.universetoday.com/2009/07/27/galaxy-zoo-discovers-new-group-of-galaxies-green-peas/ 🙂
More congratulations to all the dedicated Peascorps and to Carie and Kevin for your amazing work! 🙂
Alice Sheppard is acknowledged twice in section 7 of the paper – probably justifiably, but suspect this is a typo.
As you were, I see now – too early in the morning!
And not just online, everytime I see a pea I’m reminded of the Zoo and fond memories of those galactic beauties fall into place.
Congratulations to all involved in the Peas Project.
