One of the Galaxy Zoo forum members, JohnF, posted this in the Galaxy Zoo forum news area:

'Moon Zoo: Citizen Science in Lunar Exploration' (A&G Journal, April 2011) - mentions Geoff, Jules & Caro with their photo of a rock rolling downhill


This is probably the article he means: Abstract

Unfortunately you need to be a member or pay a fee to read the main article.

If you're a member of the OU you can access it via the student library services. I've just printed off a copy.
Nice mention at the end too:

"Acknowledgments. Thank you to all Moon Zoo classifiers for their invaluable contributions to the project. We also give special thanks to Julia Wilkinson and her team of moderators, Thomas Jennings and Geoff Roynon, for all their help and efforts in maintaining the Moon Zoo Forum..... "
 :D

Nice work everyone!

I'll see if there's a way to put this up on the forum without treading on anyone's copyright toes....

Thought that would be the case. I've asked Katie and Pamela and they are trying to think of a way.

Just updating this thread. Thought astrostu's 365 podcast should be here.
