Astronomy Behind the Headlines at the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
(page 16-19)
Robert Naeye, Michael G. Gibbs, Suzanne Gurton

Summary
The Astronomical Society of the Pacific, as part of its mission to advance science literacy through engagement in astronomy, is starting a new online programme using podcasting and other web-based techniques to provide astronomy background to educational “intermediaries” — those who are the interface between astronomy and the public. This programme, entitled Astronomy Behind the Headlines, is designed to assist these intermediaries in quickly responding to and interpreting the latest astronomy and space science news.
