Title: Astronomy Without an Astrophysics Degree
Podcaster: Pamela Gay and Fraser Cain
Description: If you’re too impatient to spend the 10+ years it takes to get an astrophysics degree, and want to do some real astronomy research right now, we can help. We’re going to talk about how amateurs are making real contributions to astronomy.
