Welcome to our new astronomy community!
The community is aimed at astronomers, astrophysicists, planetary scientists and others who conduct space research. We welcome contributions from the academic community, including graduate students, postdocs, or PIs — but we also hope to draw from the large number of amateur astronomers or citizen scientists who have a keen interest in astronomy and contribute to research in their own time, using equipment and analysis methods on a par with the academics.
The community is supported by our astronomy journals, including Nature, Nature Astronomy, Nature Physics, Nature Geoscience and Nature Communications, as well as our new journal, Communications Physics, which launched in February.
Feel free to join the discussion by commenting on posts - and enjoy the community!
