Do Bars Kill Galaxies at the Royal Astronomical Society

On Friday I went up to London and spoke at the Royal Astronomical Society "Ordinary Meeting". The title of my talk was "Do Bars Kill Galaxies" - it was based on my recent Galaxy Zoo paper on the dependence of the fraction of bars on other properties of galaxies (described on the Galaxy Zoo blog in these articles).

After the meeting I met two of the Galaxy Zoo volunteers who had contributed classifications ("John F", and "Geoff"). They were very nice, and John wrote a review of the event (my talk and the other two which were given) on the Galaxy Zoo Forum.

It was a fun day out in London.
