Astronomy hacks from #dotastro

.Astronomy 5 was the latest in a series of astronomy unconferences that happened in Cambridge last week. The middle day of the conference was a hack day which produced several cool projects!

For example: the touching ballad of a misnamed exoplanet…

A heatmap showing how heavily parts of the sky have been studied….


And a more beautiful ArXiv.


These, and more great examples of what can be done in just one day of hacking, are listed here!
