Citizen Science and Astronomical Observing – National Space Centre Q&A with Chris Lintott

Join the National Space Centre for a LIVE Space Q&A with the Sky at Night’s Chris Lintott, Friday 26 March 19:00-20:00.

Have you become more interested in astronomy during the past year? Now is the chance to ask your space questions to special guest, Chris Lintott, who will be joining the National Space Centre for a free LIVE Space Q&A. Chris is Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Oxford and co-presenter of the BBC’s Sky at Night and will be joining the visitor attraction online for a Facebook live on Friday 26 March at 19:00.

Chris is a professor of astrophysics at the University of Oxford, where he is also a research fellow at New College, working on topics including galaxy evolution, transient detection and machine learning.

As Principal Investigator of the Zooniverse, he leads a team who run the world’s most successful citizen science projects, allowing more than a million people to discover planets, transcribe ancient papyri or explore the Serengeti.

A passionate advocate of the public understanding of science, he is best known as co-presenter of the BBC’s long running Sky at Night programme. His book, ‘The Crowd and the Cosmos’, is now available from Oxford University Press.

Whether you want to know what you can see in the night sky this month, where we should look for life in the Solar System, or how you can get involved in citizen science, ask your space-themed questions to Chris Lintott ahead of this special Live Space Q&A.
