Jennie McCormick - the super stargazer

From Labour Day, 9:40 am on 28 October 2013

Auckland Astronomer Jennie McCormick is fascinated by space. She has co-discovered 20 planets, solar systems and an asteroid, which she'll get to name. She's even built her own observatory and spends hours each night, when the weather is clear, gazing into the vast space above. She was recently nominated for a Next Woman of the Year award. Jennie tells us about why she collects meteorites and explains what a galactic bulge is.
