Topic

Q: What’s translated by volunteers into 20 languages daily, accessed over 1 million times per day on average and has a massive number of followers on Facebook (about 400,000), Instagram (about 800,000) and Twitter (about 1 million)?
A: It’s APOD: Astronomy Picture of the Day, one of NASA’s most popular websites. Not yet aware of it? Then you’re in for a treat! Each day a different photo of our fascinating universe is featured. Don’t miss your chance during Husky Bites to hear the stories and science behind these NASA images and videos, from Prof. Nemiroff himself. He created APOD and runs it along with Alice Allen, one of its biggest and earliest fans. She volunteered to help out and soon took expert care of APOD's discussion board and Facebook page in her spare time, evenings and weekends. During Husky Bites they’ll take us on their own magnificent, curated journey to discover the cosmos!
