What do we detect when we look into space? Very little, actually. Almost all of what we know about the universe comes from analysis of a very limited set of phenomena. Yet we have managed to extrapolate a lot of knowledge from that limited array of what we detect and measure from space.

The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of 2009. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of 2009.
