Follow the reluctant adventures in the life of a Welsh astrophysicist sent around the world for some reason, wherein I photograph potatoes and destroy galaxies in the name of science. And don't forget about my website,

Ask An Astronomer Anything At All About Astronomy (XVII)

There are links here, Mum. To a questions page which has actual answers on it.

1) Why does the Cygnus spacecraft need to do a de-orbit burn ?
Because it won't fall down by magic.

2)  Apart form looking for aliens, what will China's new 500m telescope do ?
Many, many wonderful things.

3) What do you think of this UFO report ?
It's pointless.

4) What do you think of this 80 minute documentrary about UFOs ?
oh God PLEASE no.

5) Since energy and mass are equivalent, are dark matter and dark energy really just the same thing ?

6) Do black holes rip you apart because they're made of antimatter ?

7) If a star turned into a black hole would it suck in all its planets ?

8) If you had a teaspoon of material from a white dwarf would it destroy the Earth ?
