A Global Success

In April 2010, Astronomers Without Borders created Global Astronomy Month (GAM) to continue the excitement of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009). GAM 2010 was a good start, and we anticipated having more programs and partners for this year's second edition. But what we ended up with – in participants, programs and partners – far exceeded our most optimistic expectations. The force behind this activity is easy to identify – the enthusiasm of people around the world for astronomy, in every country and culture. IYA2009 showed what can be accomplished when this enthusiasm is harnessed. GAM, like IYA2009, provides... Read More...
