Follow the Zooites' Academic Exploits

This post is a plug for two of our forum members – Waveney and Alice – who have been inspired by Galaxy Zoo to go and start a course at university in astronomy. Waveney is working on a Ph.D at the Open University and Alice is doing an MSc course at Queen Mary University. Both are blogging about their experiences on the forum, so if you’re interested in what they are up to, go check out their reports.

    Thanks for this blog post, Kevin! I am already amazed at the amount of interest zooites are showing in my muddly lecture notes, and so happy to be effectively bringing you all along with me on my course. Well, at least some of it. Because so many of you have taught me so much, though, I feel it’s only fair – as well as that astronomy should be available to anyone who wants to know it.
