'Sky At Night' Covers Galaxy Zoo

The BBC's [http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/space/spaceguide/skyatnight 'Sky At Night'] will be covering the [http://www.galaxyzoo.org Galaxy Zoo] project on its September 8th edition. The ICG's Bob Nichol will be featuring in the programme, which will be broadcast at 12:00am-12:20am on BBC1, and later the same day at 8pm on BBC4. From the programme description: `Only a tiny fraction of the billions of galaxies in our Universe have ever been seen, yet sorting them into beautiful spirals and giant ellipticals remains a task best carried out, not by computers but by the human brain. Sir Patrick Moore looks at the results recorded by more than 150,000 volunteers who've taken part in the Galaxy Zoo project, and talks to a Dutch schoolteacher who discovered something unique.'
