Wrong magazine I'm afraid.  That what comes of reading New Scientist at 2am in the morning.  Anyway, I've sent it to you (Hanny) via e-mail.

Ooh, apparantly I missed the nominations but we're in a top 10 again!! 8)

Universe Today's scientific endeavours of 2008

"Galaxy Zoo is a superb example on how enthusiasts can use an Internet-based system to observe and identify objects in the cosmos. I am sure Hanny's Voorwerp will continue to captivate professionals and amateurs, ensuring Galaxy Zoo's popularity through 2009 and beyond…"

Thanks to Edd for sending it round! :-*

I think it's hilarious that they are using my tongue-in-cheek "highly scientific illustration" :D

So, the 'Voorwerps' are becoming a sort of category of objects! The Voorwerps are upgrading!  :D

Eh..., do I have "1" post in the forum? Oeps, what's happened to my account?
