Want to join me here? 8)

I'll be speaking about the Zoo and Hanny's Voorwerp in no more or less than 20 slides (and I have exactly 20 seconds for each slide!) :o

After that, visitors will be able to try the Zoo themselves. And it looks like a fun event. Do PM me if you're interested! :)

More info here and here. :P

Well, you might need to take a zip from your tea inbetween.
I might come, if I don't have anything else to do. Ik woon toch maar een paar minuten van nemo vandaan.  ;D

:D Friends of mine from my biology course (Sjors and Edwin), they came for moral support.

Here's them with me:



(I'm 173cm, Sjors on my left is 204cm and Edwin on my right is 196cm - we sometimes refer to each other by these numbers, us weird creatures). ::)
