ZooTube
« on: February 24, 2010, 10:06:58 am »
So that we can have a presence on YouTube, the biggest self-broadcast site on the internet,
with the permission of Alice I have edited her talk to the Bristol Astronomical Society in Jan 2009
into ten minute slices. Using Hannah and mine's APOD as a background, the talk is more
accessible now as it is smaller slices. Please go and have a listen. The quality is nothing remarkable,
but hopefully it could lead to a thread where people put links to Astronomy-related subjects that are
solely on YouTube. I'll run through some technical details later, but here goes:

Many, many thanks Rick!

Disclaimers: I fluffed up the bit about asteroids, and mistakenly thought Kevin had been Chris's student. So don't believe those bits :D

I have sent Rick all 46 slides I used in the talk, but understandably it will take him quite a while to put all those in and time them properly (I wouldn't have a clue!). In the meantime you can look at a few of them here.

Does anyone have any other great videos of Galaxy Zoo? There is a 2 year old one here of Chris talking to the Bad Astronomer about some of our early results - namely, that we seemed to be finding more anticlockwise than clockwise spirals in the Universe; but that was us, not the Universe! ;D

 ;D ;D I remember this was it posted before? It was the first and only time I have heard you speak. Was there pictures with the speech or am I totally confused?

Yeah, I gave the talk a year ago, but it's now being transferred onto youtube. Like I said there were slides and some are on my blog, and Rick is going to add them bit by bit as that is no easy task . . .

What about Caro's? And didn't someone put galaxies to music a while back?

Thank you so much for including some of my art.  I guess we are now internationally renowned artists- :)
