Next Hangout – Thursday March 6th, 12.00pm Taipei Standard Time

Several of the Galaxy Zoo science team are together in Taipei this week for the Citizen Science in Astronomy workshop. If we’ve been a bit quiet it’s because we’re all working hard to get some of the more recent Galaxy Zoo classifications together from all of your clicks into information about galaxies we can make publicly available for science.

Brooke (@vrooje), Kevin (@kevinschawinski) and Zooniverse developer Ed working hard in Taipei on improvements to the process of how we turn your clicks into science papers.

But we thought we’d take this opportunity of all being in the same place to run a live Hangout. We might end up talking a bit about the process of combining multiple clicks into classifications, as well as some of the recent Galaxy Zoo science results. And we’re of course happy to take questions, either as comments below, as Tweets to @galaxyzoo or via the Google+ interface.

We plan to do this during our lunch break  – probably about 12.00pm Taipei Standard Time tomorrow (which is, if I can do my sums, 4.00am UK time, or Wednesday 5th March at 11.00pm EST, 8.00pm PST). As usual the video will also be available to watch later:

    Question: when will data be available from galaxy zoo hubble and 4? I know one paper has already came out for hubble. Thanks…Tom Zolotor

    Could you post the slides used in the two Monday sessions that were webcast on the Zooniverse Citizen Science in Astronomy workshop webpage (as well as on YouTube)? Most of them are very hard to impossible to read, in the video.

    Thanks.

      Hi Jean,

      You can see the talks and slides here: http://csiaworkshop.zooniverse.org/

      Is that what you meant? Or do you want a different format? I am not sure if the PDF files will be made available.

      Cheers,
      -Brooke

        Hi Brooke,

        For some reason, I had not found that site 😦 Yes, it’s what you get when you click the various “Slides” buttons that I was asking about. With those open in one window and the corresponding (YouTube) video running in another, I can now understand far better what, for example, Karen means when she says “what the median and interquartile range of classification probabilities are”, because I can now actually see the what’s in the plot/chart she’s referring to!

        Thanks.
