Participate in the Portal

The science of astronomy never ceases to amaze. Every day new results are published that trigger a cascade of coverage in the media across news services, blogs, podcasts and in social networks. New providers appear while old ones disappear. To accommodate all these changes, the Portal to the Universe remains a dynamic project. We encourage participation from everyone interested in space sciences and what they mean for humankind.

Joining the Portal Team

Are you interested in being an Editor for Portal to the Universe? All it takes is a little dedication (a few hours a week, but we are flexible), a love for astronomy and an internet connection! Please contact Adam Hadhazy ( if you are interested in helping out with editing from anywhere in the world.

An Editor's responsibilities include sifting through content to feature the newest, best and most interesting findings, stories, interviews and more, while also filtering out some of the non-astronomy related items that make their way onto the Portal. Editors are also encouraged to reach out to content providers (news sources, bloggers, etc) to promote the use of RSS feeds and to spread word about the Portal in the community.

Many individuals are working with the Portal to make sure that the best possible content reaches our readers. The different roles and responsibilities are listed here.
