It’s been a bit quiet round here, hasn’t it? I didn’t mean to disappear quite so suddenly, but I’ve been thoroughly distracted this summer. Still, I’m back now and I’ve got lots to write about, including trips to JPL, Jodrell and Birr and a guest blog exploring CERN which will be coming up later this week.
Otherwise, it’s been Galaxy Zoo that’s been distracting me. The Telegraph is reporting today on the most interesting of our preliminary results. We should say preliminary in bold, though, because while we’re convinced the signal is real (that is to say, the data really does show this effect) we need to run some tests to check this isn’t human bias at work.
Thanks for bearing with me while I’ve been away from the keyboard; lots more to come over the next few weeks, I promise.
