Save the Date: A Planet Four Reddit Science AMA

We’re happy to announce that the science team behind Planet Four and Planet Four: Terrains will be hosting a Science Series Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Reddit’s /r/science subreddit this coming Friday on July 17, 2015! The post will go live at 8 a.m. EDT to collect questions, and the team will begin answering them at 1 p.m. EDT.

The Science AMA Series is, according to Reddit, “a unique format that allows scientists to speak about their work in a manner that is not possible within the confines of traditional short-form journalism.” Essentially, anyone with a Reddit account can post a question for the team—about Mars, the Martian climate, citizen science, the Zooniverse, the Planet Four projects, or anything else relevant—and the team will be providing answers and follow-ups to as many as possible.

Science team members Michael Aye, Anya Portyankina, and Meg Schwamb will be joined by Zooniverse community builder Darren McRoy for the AMA.

We’ll post another blog on July 17 with a link to the AMA, as well. Save the date, start preparing your questions, and make a Reddit account if you don’t have one. We hope to see you there!
