This part of the site is something of an oddity, as it moves completely away from the main “debunking” theme of this site. I plan to use it as a kind of “occasional blog”, in which to publish some of my more general writing. It’s a mixed bag of essays, presenting my views on a variety of subjects, but generally connected with space, astronomy and/or science in general.
Some of these essays are adapted from articles which were originally published in Transit, the magazine of Cleveland and Darlington Astronomical Society, which is also published on the Society’s web site ( and in one case, from one which wasn’t published ). Some of my friends have told me that they deserve a wider audience – hence I’m putting them here. In these cases, the dates in the headers indicate when I wrote the original articles, not when they were added to this site.
