24-hour live webcast from telescopes around the world

Several observatories have partnered with the University of Arizona to offer a 24-hour live webcast from telescopes around the world.

The event, which starts at 2 a.m. Friday, is in honor of the International Year of Astronomy. The event is called “Around the World in 80 Telescopes.”

Those interested in watching can tune in at www.100hoursofastronomy.org and watch. It can also be found on www.ustream.tv streaming live. Both require a web browser that supports Flash.

Telescopes from every continent, including Antarctica will be incorporated in the webcast.

The webcast will start in Mauna Kea, Hawaii and make its way west. Observatories in Arizona and California will be towards the end of the webcast.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
