Age Poll of Astronomers
      #5845476 - 05/07/13 12:45 PM

Hi all, I am interested in seeing what the average or demographic of all of us are.
Myself for instance is 52.
How about you?
At the end of a few days take the total of all the ages and devide by how many individuals there are...
should be interesting!
thanks for participating.
Larry

Larry

A similar informal poll was conducted a few years ago on both Cloudy Nights and Astromart. I will try to dig up the results.

Since then, I have gotten older so I that I qualify as a senior citizen by all possible measures, I am 65.

I'm currently 42. I'd note that I've been a member of the same local astronomy club since I was in 6th grade, however
