I am thrilled to report that my Guardian blog, Across The Universe, has been shortlisted for the 2012 UK Science Blog Prize.
The prize has been initiated by Good Thinking, a small UK-based organisation devoted to promoting science and debunking pseudoscience. The awards evening is presented in association with Soho Skeptics. My grateful thanks for this recognition go to both organisations.
The prize night is on Sunday 25 in London. I will be there to give a short talk and to applaud the other nominees. I am honoured by the nomination and to be in such company. You can buy tickets to the event here.

“Good Thinking, in association with Soho Skeptics, are delighted to present the inaugural UK Science Blog Prize awards evening.
At the start of October, Good Thinking asked for nominations to find the best UK science bloggers. Over one hundred blogs were entered. This evening, we’ll be revealing the runners up and presenting the grand prize of £1,000 to the overall winner.
Attending on the night will be a number of the judges, including Ben Goldacre and Simon Singh. Also appearing will be our very special guest, Helen Arney, who will be providing a musical interlude.
However, the main part of the evening will be given over to the short listed bloggers, who will be asked to give brief talks either based around their blog subject or on blogging in general.
The short-listed bloggers are (in no particular order)
• Stuart Clark: Across the Universe
• David Colquhoun: DC’s Improbable Science
• Ed Yong: Not Exactly Rocket Science
• André Tomlin: The Mental Elf
