Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Science

Popular writer on the origin and diversity of planetary systems and the formation of stars and brown dwarfs.

"Where do we fit in? How does our solar system stack up against others? It’s a question broader than science, and yet almost within our reach scientifically. The times we live in just happen to be the time in which I can go out and get some partial answers. The frontier is open and you can go out and play."
