This is an index with the schedules of the science, space and astronomy themed Google+ Hangouts on Air which we are following in the WSH Crew Community. It complements the Hangout Calendar, but has more information about each hangout and a back archive to the event pages. We try to keep the index and the calendar up to date as timely as possible, but we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to catch all the updates. For corrections or suggestions, please use the comments on the pinned post over in the community!
