The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation played host to a work experience visit by Michael Jones, a 15 year old GCSE student from The Petersfield School, from July 13th to 17th.
Michael spent a week at the institute in order to experience the working life of a cosmologist. Michael was supervised by Prof David Wands and during the course of the week he learnt a bit about modern cosmology and astronomy, and he designed a Galaxy Zoo - Google Earth tour of exo-solar planets, with some help from Dr Ben Hoyle.
