The Aurorasaurus team ran their first Google+ Hangout today, introducing the project and its scientific aims as well as running through details about citizen science reporting and how to use the website. Nathan introduced himself, answered some questions about the aurorae as well as summarizing how Aurorasaurus will be using the citizen science observations.

Nathan was invited to take part in a Skype chat about “space” with Class 3 from Ince CE Primary School. The children in Class 3 had been learning all about space and human missions to the Moon and so invited Nathan to speak a bit about the work he does and to answer some questions they had. Nathan answered questions ranging from things like “what are stars made of?” to “has a giraffe been to space?”!
