EU Universe Awareness (EU-UNAWE) is pleased to announce that the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) – the UK's leading professional body for astronomy, geophysics and planetary sciences – is joining forces with its astronomy news service for children, Space Scoop.
The idea behind Space Scoop is to show children the exciting new discoveries that are still being made today and how there is still much to learn about the Universe – research that they could contribute to in the future.
Space Scoop was launched in February 2011 in partnership with the European Southern Observatory (ESO). Since then, the NASA Chandra X-ray Observatory, Europlanet and the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) have joined the Space Scoop family. This has increased the number of releases that are published on the EU-UNAWE website each week and made Space Scoop the biggest and best resource for astronomy news for children.
The new partnership with the RAS will further strengthen Space Scoop. You can read the first RAS Space Scoop here.
