We wanted to bring you a symposium on the International Year of Astronomy via UStream. Unfortunately, there is no internet connection available in the room the symposium is being held. We apologize, and thank you for your interest!
UPDATE: IYA SYMPOSIUM
We’ll also be UStreaming a Symposium on Preparing for the International Year of Astronomy, which will deal with the practical aspects of making the International Year of Astronomy a success. The symposium starts at 2:00 pm Central time. If you want to participate in the chat room, go here. (UPDATE – not available)
Some fun topics today for a press conference from the American Astronomical Society: lunar telescopes and SETI. We’ll try to write about those topics soon, but you can watch the press conference live at Astronomy Cast’s UStream channel.
It all starts at 9:30 a.m. Central time (15:30 UT). Video is embedded below. If you want to participate in the chat room, go here.
