Join the COA on Wednesday, November 20th, for a trip to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute of the Senate and lunch at the famous Doyle’s in Jamaica Plain. The group will take an air conditioned air ride bus, leaving the Donelan’s parking lot at 9:00 am, and returning around 4:00 pm. You will have a private tour of the Institute then go to Doyle’s, the famous Irish pub. This trip is rated moderate for physical ability, as there will be a walking tour and some stairs involved. The cost of the trip is $28, which covers the bus and admission to the Institute. Lunch is off the regular menu and is on your own. Space is limited and trips fill up fast.

Let's do Galaxy Zoo.
Galaxy Zoo is an online amateur science project that has been in existence for over 10 years. The goal is to help professional astronomers understand how galaxies form & evolve. In this project, amateurs view images from a database containing hundreds of thousands of galaxies and use simple criteria to classify those galaxies in various ways. It turns out that this task is done much more accurately by humans than by computer software. Participation can range from several minutes at a time to hours-long sessions -- it's up to you. In addition to contributing to fundamental research and gaining insights into how science is done, you can see a stunning collection of images of exotic galaxies. If there is sufficient interest, we might start an interest group of people participating in this project. The programs are suitable for anyone from age 10 and up.
