here are a few photos from the conference i attended last week in london. i'm working on writing some reflections, but for now, some pictures will have to do!
at lunch, a balloon artist, Bubblz Ainslie, asked maggie philbin to challenge her. she responded: make a radio telescope!
very impressive! near the end of the conference, we all electronically voted on what other astronomical tool we wanted to see as a balloon model, and the international space station won!
here she is, the artist hard at work, trying to create a balloon spiral galaxy... bubblz the math clown!
this one isnt astronomically related, but too cute not to highlight!
