The video associated with the BU Today story, “ Pondering What’s Way, Way Out There” which features CAS Astronomy Assistant Professor Merav Opher, won an honorable mention in the video category. By the way, you can also check out Merav’s great media work in a RadioLab segment.
A gold medal went to Kal Zabarsky and Melody Kamyerov for the stunning picture, “Bubble Boy,” associated with a story Jeremy Schwab wrote on the autism work done by CAS Psychology Professor Helen Tager-Flusberg and her colleagues.
