Bad Astronomy

The Bad Astronomy blog is all about real-world science — it covers the entire Universe, from subatomic particles to the Big Bang itself. Astronomy, space exploration, the effect of politics on'll find it all here, as well as anything else that pops in to Phil Plait's science-drenched brain. And you'll find it described with obvious joy and love for all things cosmic.

Phil Plait is an astronomer, author, and science communicator. He wrote and hosted Crash Course Astronomy, was the head science writer of Bill Nye Saves the World, and has appeared as a talking head on approximately a bazillion Discovery Channel shows.
