Stars in their eyes: thanks and farewell, Michele Bannister

Astronomical thanks to @astrokiwi, Michele Bannister of the Outer Solar System Origins Survey, for her star turn as this week’s @RealScientists curator. Michele’s kept up our meteoric standards of universally fascinating science tweetage, and we’re over the moon with the stellar response; even had we tried, we simply couldn’t planet better. Of course, if you have any thoughts, send them through; we always value your feedback. Remember, comet is free.

Yes, I’ll stop now.

Congratulations also to @TheWah for cleaning up in @AstroKiwi’s RealScientists Space Haiku Competition, with his submission ‘Solar wind smashes | Interstellar medium | Termination shock.’ The Wah is a Queensland-based educator and science communicator who co-hosts science, comedy and stupidity podcast Smart Enough To Know Better. He will be receiving a package of astro-goodies from Michele, shortly before he is mugged for said package of astro-goodies by disgruntled coordinators of RealScientists who weren’t allowed to enter. Thanks again to Michele for the brilliant idea and the prizes!

Next on Real Scientists, @willozap aka Dr Will Grant of the ANU’s National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. We’ll have more on Will very soon.
