    We have just seen this played at Carter Observatory in Wellington, New Zealand – absolutely fantasic, and funny for us Brits living here in NZ to hear the accents! Brilliant little film, well done 🙂

      Thanks very much Marrisa. The 2.0s were very excited about being famous in New Zealand.

    I saw this at the Centre For Life in Newcastle Upon Tyne. It was excellent.
    One question – what were the websites where you could help the exploration effort that David Tennant talked about in the film ? I forgot to jot them down. Something like Galactic Zoo or Galaxy Cafe or something ?
    Cheers and Good luck with it all

      Hello Ben. Glad you enjoyed the show. The effort to classify Galaxies as talked about in the film is called ‘Galaxy Zoo’. ‘Galaxy Zoo’ was created in 2007 and it was SO popular they created a ‘Galaxy Zoo 2’! If you would like to assist in the classification on Galaxies then you can take part by following this link
      If you’d like to be involved in more projects like this then visit Zooniverse they have lots of exciting projects for you to get involved in and you never know, you might even spot an undiscovered Galaxy or a mysterious object!
      Happy Galaxy hunting Ben
