Description:
Project Galileo is an educational astronomy project, based at Clifton College in Bristol, in the United Kingdom.



History

Project Galileo started in December 2000, as a result of a telescope being donated to a Bristol school, with the overall aim of making the system available for other schools in the area to use. The system became operational in July 2005, and is expected to have full on-line capability by the autumn of 2008.
