    Rightly so! I have to admit, my astronomy interests are more aesthetic than scientific, although I do find that the more one understands the nature of it, the greater the appreciation.

    Yes, I did my astronomy degree and post grad work at UCL.
    I didn't stay with it for my career, but it set me up nicely for the world of computer modelling and subsequently IT-related business management.
