"I got one of those wonderful things...a Nuffield Science Bursary"
17 June 2014
Astronomer and presenter of BBC Four's The Sky at Night Chris Lintott is the subject of this week's The Life Scientific. Chris talks about how he received a Nuffield Science Bursary and spent a summer working on a project to study the movement of dust around young stars.
He talks to presenter Jim A Khalili about his "Citizen Science" project of crowd-sourced astronomy, Galaxy Zoo, and of working with Brian May and the late Sir Patrick Moore.
Nuffield Science Bursaries are now called Nuffield Research Placements. Through these placements, we provide over 1,000 students each year with the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
