Dark energy is the one上海夜生活here. It tells us th

there may be something very, very profound about the way that sp

There are two answers to that and it’s quite political, of course. Space flight is expensive. And if you’re interested purely in s

上海夜生活cientific research, then I think you can send a lot of robots, because you can get more of them.

But, it’s also true that human capability is far in excess of robots, so we need that.

Most scientists would say they don’t like space flights because it removes a lot of money from their activities.上海夜生活

On the second point, we’re going to Mars because there is nowhere else to go

Have you written any children’s books, or will you?上海夜生活

It’s tremendously difficult to write books for children. A friend of mine, Oliver Je

ecisely constructed; it’s an art, a real art. I’ve written for newspapers – you would well understand – and you can ha

v上海夜生活e different allowable paragraph lengths, and sometimes the shortest sentences in a paragraph are the most diffi

cult ones to write. I would love to write children’s books, but it’s a skill I don’t have now.

You’re a wine lover. Why not write a book on wine?上海夜生活品茶微信

I’m a big fan of wine writer Jancis Robinson. For wine, I’m still on the learning curv

e. I started collecting it to drink, but I don’t collect it as investment; it’s more like a sort of exploration. I like lear上海夜生活

ning curves, so music and wine and other subjects make for interesting diversions. I get bored every five or six ye

ars, so science is about the only constant thing. I love red wines, like Bordeaux, but as I’ve got older, I find the上海夜生活品茶微信

y are less easy to drink. So I like white Burgundies, and I very much like chardonnay and c

hampagnes, blanc de blancs. It’s a bit niche though, the study of white Burgundy, to write a book about.

Are you more underwhelmed or overwhelmed by the public’s general knowledge of science?
