Thanks to everyone who has donated so far. We're launching a mini-campaign to try and reach half of our goal going into the last week of crowdfunding. Help us raise $700 for another VR headset by next Monday through sharing the project! As an extra incentive we're starting a perk sale! Through this weekend only, private stargazing for you + ten friends is 50% off (now $500).
For those of you who are local, we wanted to let you know Cal day is this Saturday! All of UC Berkeley is open to the public to showcase the research going on here. Come by the astronomy department at Campbell Hall to hear public lectures, look at sunspots (safely), and check out a preliminary version of the interactive platform we're building with your donations!
For our next spotlight, we're showcasing Drummond Fielding, a graduate student in our department who researches how exploding stars launch powerful winds from galaxies.
