I wanted to take a moment and point your browsers at a few websites that I really enjoy, and I think you will too. You’ve probably heard of the Bad Astronomer, but do you know of the Angry Astronomer? Jon Voisey is an astronomy major at the University of Kansas. Jon has recently been journaling the battle against intelligent design and antiscience movements, but if you dig a little deeper into his archives, you’ll see some great articles explaining concepts in astronomy.
A second site I really enjoy is called Centauri Dreams, written by Paul Gilster. Paul is the author of the similarly named book, which we reviewed here on Universe Today. Paul’s website supports his investigation into concepts for interstellar travel – realistic ways that we could actually get spacecraft from here to neighbouring stars. Roll through the archive, it’s absolutely fascinating reading.
