I don’t thoughts admitting that I’m deeply depressed about all these tales of bullying and sexual harassment in Astronomy which have surfaced not too long ago, and I’m certain there are lots of extra that haven’t but come to gentle. I’ve skilled some poisonous behaviour in my time however nothing on the size of what has emerged not too long ago.
I wonder if all which means that Astronomy is worse than different areas of academia or whether or not in all places else is simply as unhealthy?
I put up a completely unscientific Twitter ballot to see what my readers suppose. Please be happy to let me know your opinion:
