I Tune, You Tube, We Rule
One of the projects which the ESA/Hubble group here in Germany is involved with is the International Astronomical Union’s commission on Communicating Astronomy With The Public.
Part of this project involves the publication of a journal for science communicators (with a focus on astronomy communicators). The journal hopes to be a repository of ideas and information as well as tips on communicating astronomy with the public.
The first issue has now been released online to coincide with the 2007 Communicating Astronomy With The Public conference held in Athens. I have an article (co-authored with Raquel Yumi Shida) on the use of new media in communicating astronomy. Entitled ‘I Tune, You Tube, We Rule’ you can download it to read for free online here.
