Bad Astronomy

Dr. Philip Plait is an astronomer and author and creator of Bad Astronomy, a great science blog hosted by Discover Magazine at discovermagazine.com (lots of good stuff on there). He has a recent post on the CERN podcast, which is hosted by Dr. Brian Cox. The interview with reticent British satirist Chris Morris is curiously straightforward and enjoyable.

Plait has a new book coming out (cover on left) called Death From The Skies!, described by Kirkus as "A surprisingly upbeat look at all the ways the universe can destroy us".
