A Galaxy Zoo science team dinner
Almost a month ago now, Galaxy Zoo hosted a Specialist Discussion at the Royal Astronomical Society in London, on the topic of Morphology in the Era of Large Surveys. It was actually a wonderful day full of interesting talks and discussion, and we will be sharing more of the science content from the discussion as soon as we find time to put that together.
One of the other fun things about this meeting was that as well as the fantastic invited speakers, mostly from outside Galaxy Zoo collaboration, many members of the Galaxy Zoo science team were able to attend and contribute talks. We had representatives of team members from Minnesota, Oxford, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Hertfordshire and Zurich in attendance. It was a great chance for us to catch up both scientifically and socially. Below is a set of round table pictures we took during our “team dinner” that Friday night in London’s Chinatown. The captions always list names from left to right. The poor photography is entirely my fault!
Yes, that was an interesting series of talks – never seen a “Red Herring” before.
Afterwards we socialised at the RAS wine party and some more of us went out to dinner in the Haymarket. Some of us are hoping to attend Zoocon at Oxford, in two week’s time.
John – I look forward to seeing you in Oxford at Zoocon. 🙂
