Hi,

I want to ask about exoplanets. I have made a video that fully explains why I have this problem - I don't believe that they have found ANY, never mind the hundreds that they claim.

I'm not bonkers - I just cannot understand how they can have found even one - If you follow the maths in the video I prove that the chances of seeing one transit of an exoplanet is in the ...

Gravitational Wave Telescope

It was about forty six years after the discovery of radio waves that we saw the first radio telescopes. So, how long before we get a Gravitational Wave Telescope? More importantly, at fifty five, will I be around to see it!

The Ideal Job?

Hi Gang,

It may seem like an ideal job to some people, but for me I think lying in bed for 60 days and 60 nights may be pushing it just a little too much!! This is the study already being undertaken at a number of locations within the eurospace industry. Take a look at the webpage here and form an orderly queue for volunteers! http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Human_Spaceflight/Bedrest_studies/60_days_and_60_nights_in_bed
