Dr. Ethan Siegel

Ethan is a theoretical astrophysicist who loves writing long, glorious, illustrated articles that tell what we know about the Universe and how we know it. He's been writing the blog Starts With A Bang since 2008, currently at Forbes. If you're into astronomy, he writes a monthly column for NASA's The Space Place that appears in over 200 astronomy club newsletters worldwide. His very first book, "Beyond the Galaxy," is available from World Scientific. If you ever wanted to know the entire story of what the Universe is made of, how big it is, where it came from and what it's fate is, told in plain english with no equations, you'll definitely want to get yourself a copy. When he's not writing, Ethan can be found appearing on TV and radio spots, teaching at Lewis & Clark college, broadcasting the Starts With A Bang podcast on SoundCloud, working with various science museums and in general sharing what we know about the Universe with anyone willing to listen.

Guest: Dr. Ethan Siegel was the guest for this Space Show program. Dr. Siegel is an astrophysicist at the University of Arizona and thus was highly qualified for the cosmological discussion which made up most of this program. We began our discussion with good working definitions for both cosmology and astrophysics. As you will hear, Dr. Siegel is a superb teacher and the use of humor weighs in strongly in how he presents his information, including from his website http://startswithabang.com.
