Do Something Great with the BBC’s Sky at Night
A week and a half ago, during a trip to visit Oxford Zooniverse Headquarters, I traveled to Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory outside of Cambridge to meet with the Sky at Night’s co-presenter Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock. We talked about main-belt comets and how the public could get involved in Comet Hunters to search for these elusive breed of comets residing in the Solar System’s asteroid belt. In particular, I discussed the new HSC survey data that recently went live on the project. website.
Below is a link to a clip from Maggie encouraging people to join Comet Hunters.
This is part of the BBC’s Do Something Great Campaign, which promotes and encourages ways for everyone to get involved in volunteering and doing good. We’re thrilled to be involved in this effort with the Sky at Night.
