CosmoQuest 24-Hour Hangout-a-thon.

Most people will be somewhat aware that the US budget sequester has had a wide range of impacts, amongst which are the education and outreach services of NASA. Faced with suspension or closing down, the educators are trying to do something to keep going. In the words of Pamela Gaye.
Faced with governmental funding cuts to science education and research, we have decided to go old school with a twist: On June 15-16, we are hosting a telethon using Google Hangout on Air – a Hangout-a-thon – to raise money to support public engagement in science.
If you want to be part of this awesome hangout here's where you find out more.
