Galaxy Zoo interview Meg Urry

I was very pleased to see recently that my old friend Meg Urry was interviewed by the Galaxy Zoo as part of their She’s an Astronomer segment. Meg is a terrific person, doing great work both scientifically and for women in astronomy, so you should head over there and see what she’s up to.

  1. Small world! I just overheard Dr. Elizabeth Barton (another terrific astronomer) of UC Irvine talk about this.

  2. Cindy

    I remember Meg when both of us were at STScI. I have several students who now attend Yale and I keep telling them to take Astronomy and that there’s a cool prof at Yale named Meg Urry.

  3. I hung with Meg for a while when I was giving a talk at Yale last year, and had a wonderful time. She really is all that.
