Astronomers Without Borders

Hey! Just a quick note to plug a really cool organization called Astronomers Without Borders. They asked me to write a guest blog for them for Global Astronomy Month, and you can see that here.

I’ll be crossing some borders of my own as I head off to South Africa in late June! Dates are almost set, and it looks like I’ll be arriving in Cape Town around June 19th or 20th, then heading out to the Radio Astronomy Reserve in the Karoo for fieldwork with my colleagues on the Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization. After 2 or 3 weeks in the desert, I’ll be back with pictures and stories galore!

Travel tips welcome! If you are in and around Cape Town, say hello in the comments 🙂

    Hi Nicole,
    Thanks for mentioning Astronomers Without Borders (AWB). Little correction; AWB is rather a global organization and “Global Astronomy Mont” (GAM) is our annual program. 🙂

    Cheers and enjoy Cape Town!

    came across your site & I am really curious to hear how it is that you study a Universe of precision & yet feel that it has no Creator, no I.D.? I think that means you may have more “faith” than I do to believe that! I like to say “I don’t have the faith to be an Athiest!” So what say you please?

    Sincerely, Al
