The IAU’s Journal on Communicating Astronomy with the Public
The 17th issue of the Communicating Astronomy with the Public journal is out now!
In this issue you will find articles discussing outreach activities
for the Google Lunar XPRIZE race to the Moon; the issues involved in
communicating astronomy directly to a mass audience through television;
the role of space art in astronomy outreach; and how using simple
optical instruments to reproduce historical astronomical observations
can help amateur astronomers and the wider public engage with astronomy
in a direct, collaborative way.
There is all this, and more, in this free, peer-reviewed journal for astronomy communicators — now available for download.
