We Are Astronomers

We are Astronomers is a clever project to showcase what astronomers do. It is a 360° video meant for projection in digital planetariums showing in the United Kingdom soon. I don't know if or when it will make its way around the world, but this short clip below makes astronomy look really fun and exciting.

I want to also take this opportunity to give credit to Amanda Bauer and her wonderful Astropixie blog where I always find amazing links like the video above or a series she is highlighting on sixty symbols physicists and astronomers use. Amanda was a graduate student when I was an undergraduate at The University of Texas and she is now a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Nottingham. She is perpetually ahead of me in astronomy and the blogosphere. And now time to rock out in outer space:
