A Blog’s Demise

July 25, 2007

Dear faithful galaxy-finders,

It is mainly with relief that I am able to inform you: Galaxy Zoo has gotten together a working forum! Just go to http://www.galaxyzooforum.org and let the fun begin!

Feel free to look back at the blog, as I’ll keep it up and running, but I won’t be actively monitoring it or posting any longer, absent a change in circumstances.

Very best regards,

Salmon P. Chase

Here’s the admin note, guys:   two days ago, we had almost a thousand independent page views, and it’s looking like today will be our biggest day ever thus far… we’re also averaging about 40 comments per day, many with multiple links – so please don’t feel bad if your galaxy doesn’t get featured!  I’m just so lucky to have so many fabulous astronomer-bloggers out there helping!  KEEP IT UP!

P.S. If you noticed a “time-change” on this blog, it’s because I set it to my own time zone.  I know many of you are from the UK, some from Germany, some from Czechia, and others from elsewhere… but at least now the times make sense to ME!

Jeeze, just look at those red giants swirling around!!!  Amazing!  Interesting how the spiral-galaxy’s model imitates that of an individual solar system…
