Hi I am Steve Hurley and live near Manchester in the North West of England. Although I currently work in the field of information technology, I studied mathematics and astronomy at Warwick University as an undergraduate. Later on I gained a PhD in astronomy from the University of Manchester.
In April 2014 I started the popular science blog Explaining Science (originally called The Science Geek)
I have written a short e-book on the Moon. For more details click here.
Venus, the planet closest to the Earth in distance, size and internal composition, and the third brightest natural object in our sky after the Sun and the Moon. This is available as a paperback; for more details click here or for e-book format click here.
I have written a short e-book on the likelihood of there being extraterrestrial intelligent life and how humans have tried to find that life and make contact with it. For more details click here.
