As part of the celebrations of Galaxy Zoo’s tenth birthday (!), we’ll be hosting sessions at the UK’s National Astronomy Meeting in Hull.
I’ll be giving a public talk on Monday 3rd July – ticket details coming shortly. Then on the 4th and 5th July there will be scientific sessions on the theme of Modern Morphologies: 10 years of Galaxy Zoo.
The session abstract is as follows:
As our community has developed increasingly sophisticated techniques to analyse the data in large galaxy surveys, we have seen a resurgence of interest in galaxy morphology. Clues to a galaxy’s formation and evolution are recorded in its morphology, and we are now seeing growing evidence that its evolution may also be affected by its internal structures. This session, marking the 10th anniversary of Galaxy Zoo, will discuss results from the use of morphological markers including the effects of bars, bulges and disks.
and researchers are welcome to submit via the abstract form. Though this is part of the formal scientific conference, we’ll make sure our worldwide community are included in what’s going on.
Watch this space for more Galaxy Zoo birthday news shortly.
