Many fantastic discussions take place in pubs. In fact, depending on who you listen to, the original idea to build Galaxy Zoo came from a discussion in a pub! So what better way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the project than to host an evening of talks and discussions in the pub?
That’s exactly what we did last Monday, with the help of Oxford SciBar. There were seven speakers in total and you can watch all of their talk on YouTube via the this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2hREI-x4WI&list=PLchXp2IKn1Ne3ktFGqG3getPfulOJsTrK. NOTE: The are in seven separate parts, and the video above is only part 1. The talk schedule is as follows:
