The Microscopists

#24 — In this episode of The Microscopists, we’re joined by astronomer Professor Chris Lintott of the University of Oxford, co-founder of The Zooniverse citizen science platform, and a presenter on the BBC’s The Sky at Night programme. In this wide-ranging and enlightening chat, we discuss early inspirations, the importance of public engagement in science, the wacky rules and regulations of real tennis, and why the public like counting pictures of penguins. We'll also hear how Zooniverse projects such as Etch a Cell are helping life scientists with their research. Chris also tells us more about the most difficult time in his career and why, when you don’t know what to do, it’s always better just to do something!Watch or Listen to all episodes of The Microscopists here: http://bit.ly/the-microscopists-pds

Is There Life on Venus - Q and A with Chris Lintott

Science Shambles

Yesterday's the Royal Astronomical Society said they had detected what they suspect to be phosphine in the atmosphere of Venus. After ruling out all the usual ways this was possible, they have said that it is either indicative of a new type of chemistry or, possibly, microbial life. This obviously generated a lot of questions from Shambles viewers so we've done a quick Q and A special to put some of those we've been sent in the last 12 hours to one of our regular Shambles experts, Prof Chris Lintott, astrophysicist and co-host of The Sky at Night.

Chris Lintott: Can members of the public do real science?

Instant Genius

We’re living in the age of big data. Scientists can collect and store more information than ever before. So how can they manage it all?That’s where citizen science comes in. Members of the public can log in to the Zooniverse, the world’s largest citizen science platform, and do the hard work of sorting through the data.Whether that’s searching for alien planets or spotting penguins, the project’s co-founder Chris Lintott says that the public aren’t just helping out, but doing real science.In his new book, The Crowd and the Cosmos: Adventures in the Zooniverse (£20, OUP), Chris explains how, in just a few minutes in your lunch break, you can contribute to fields from astronomy to zoology.He speaks to BBC Science Focus online assistant Sara Rigby.Subscribe to the Science Focus Podcast on these services: Acast, iTunes, Stitcher, RSS, OvercastLet us know what you think of the episode with a review or a comment wherever you listen to your podcasts.Listen to more episodes of the Science Focus Podcast:Jim Al-Khalili: Why should we care about science and scientists?Randall Munroe: How do you find the worst solution to any problem?Dr Tilly Blyth: How has art influenced science?Does data discriminate against women? – Caroline Criado PerezHow can we save our planet? – Sir David AttenboroughMonica Grady: What is the future of space science?See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
