I am an astronomer based at Cardiff University. My research speciality is airborne astronomy, making observations from a converted Boeing 747 in oder to get above the Earth's atmosphere. I also write books and do a lot of media work (TV and radio) - see my website at http://rhodrievansastronomy.co.uk.
