| posted on 9/30/09 by Clockwork
The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast, an official podcast of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009), won the prestigious Parsec Award for Best Infotainment Podcast on September 5th, 2009. This community-produced podcast brings together the voices of astronomers and astronomy lovers all around the world. Each day a different voice discusses their favorite corner of astronomy.
Clockwork was intimately involved with the creative aspects of the project. We designed the logo and the attention-grabbing web site, which was featured in Smashing Magazine. Clockwork's Michael Koppelman also produced the podcast, along with fellow new media astronomers Pamela Gay, Nancy Atkinson, Rob Simpson and Stuart Lowe.
