The Young Astronomers rely on contributions from our editors to produce the content for the blog and our other projects and we are always on the look out for new editors.
If any of you would like to contribute to the Young Astronomers we would be delighted to have you on the team.
Currently we are particularly in need of contributors who are interested in observational astronomy and are willing to share their knowledge with others.
If you are interested in participating with the Young Astronomers please send an example post to firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch with us through our forum.
We look forward to seeing your submissions!
After a long break from any activity the Young Astronomers are well and truly back in action!
First of all we have our brand spanking new blog – which of course you have managed to find if you are reading this!
All of the content from our temporary home at Sigma Orionis has already been transferred and we are still working on restoring content from our original blog. That process is nowhere near completed and will continue for a long period of time yet!
We are also working on filling out the blog with new content from more informational posts, more up to date news, interviews and hopefully podcasts.
As well as our new blog we also have our shiny new forum which you can access through here or via the convenient button on the top site navigation bar. Like the blog, the forum is still being fleshed out with content but don’t be afraid to start your own discussions!
Work on the main site is also continuing and we will update you with more news as development proceeds.
We would also really like to hear your thoughts about the new blog and you can tell us using our forum topic or using our poll below
In the mean time its great to be back and thanks for bearing with us!
As you can see we have made significant progress in getting content from our previous site checked, updated and posted.
In fact you can expect to see at least five posts tomorrow thanks to this recovery effort alone. Though while we are posting these recovered posts quite quickly we has of yet barely scratched the surface on the recovery process.
Our current plan for the content recovery is to continue putting up the smaller posts as soon as they are ready though we have a more structured plan for our larger posts.
We aim to have the majority of the more informational content of the site built around a series of keystone posts that will contain the basics on a wide range of astronomical topics such as Stars, Galaxies and Exoplanets. Over the coming months we hope to produce or recover approximately one of these posts per week.
More advanced posts focusing on a particular aspect of the topic will link back to the relevant keystone post. That way we won’t end up repeating ourselves every time we deal with a new aspect of the topic.
Thanks again for bearing with the recovery process, it may be long and drawn out but it also gives us a chance to improve the material we already have rather than regurgitating any errors that had slipped into the originals.
The Young Astronomers Site is still undergoing repairs and so is still offline. So those of you wondering why you have been redirected here can be assured that the redirect is still active and it is not anproblem with your browser.
You can read the posts produced by all the Young Astronomers contributors written after the site went down below. These will be transferred to the normal site once the repairs have been completed. We had hoped that the repairs would have been completed though they have encountered a few snags that have delayed progress though we are confident that the repairs should be completed soon.
Once again thanks for your continued patience.
