Hi this is Steve Hurley
From an early age I have had an interest in science and astronomy. After leaving high school I studied mathematics and astronomy at Warwick University, followed by a PhD in astronomy from Manchester University. I then went on to work in various roles in the IT industry. My wife and I live near Manchester in north west of England (with our elderly rather spoilt cat 😉 )
My passion is explaining scientific ideas to the interested lay person and since 2014 I have have been writing a popular science blog (www.explainingscience.org). It is about astronomy, space travel and space, written at a level which is easily accessible to the non-scientist but without being dumbed down. This is often a difficult balance to achieve, but I hope I manage it most of the time.
In 2020 I started my YouTube channel , which is well worth checking out !
