Science & Stories

Public talk with YA author, Ria Voros, at the Friends of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory Society (FDAO)  star party, held at the—very appropriately named— Centre of the Universe in Victoria, BC. The talk will be repeated twice during the evening. Details can be found here.


At the start of 2018, young adult author, Ria Voros, approached me asking if she could include me as a real-life astrophysicist in her new book, “The Center of the Universe”. Of course, I said yes!

“The Center of the Universe” is coming out in April, the same month as “The Planet Factory’ is released in paperback in Canada. It was too good an opportunity to miss, so Ria and I decided to hold a series of talks on both our books together. It’s time to talk “Science and Stories”.
