Hi I am Steve Hurley and live near Manchester in the North West of England. Although I currently work in information technology, I have an astronomy background having 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)
In addition to my e blog have written three books
- A short e-book on the Moon. For more details click here.
- Venus and how we could terraform it so that humanity could colonise the planet. This is available as a paperback; for more details click here or for e-book format click here.
- 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.
