public talks

I am happy to give public talks about what I do and why I do it to schools, astronomical societies, science festivals, science cafés etc. Feel free to contact me by email if you wish to arrange this.

Regrettably I cannot answer general astronomy questions by email from individuals. There are many good sites on the web which probably have the answer to your question. A good starting point is the (now rather old) Usenet sci.astro FAQ.
