I tuned in yesterday and found this a very interesting presentation, giving lively and sometimes humorous insights into how professional astronomers spend their time. I hadn’t heard the one about the telescope with bullet holes in the mirror!

It seems there are only about 50,000 astronomers on the planet, so we are a comparatively rare breed. Will amateur astronomers be The Last Stargazers, given that the pros rarely, if ever, peer into an eyepiece?

Well worth catching this if you missed it last night.

Thanks for posting, Andy.
