    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!!!!

    Alice Sheppard is acknowledged twice in section 7 of the paper – probably justifiably, but suspect this is a typo.

    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.
