Only a few months ago Dean Jones emailed me asking for some footage of a few of his 100’s for Australia, I was so happy to stay up all night editing it all as fast as I could, sent it to him, he was so happy. 😭

I can’t believe this news. So very sad to hear about this. Rip Deano, you will be missed. https://t.co/Mc8h36gnWe

Life in our universe depends upon stable elements in the periodic table. But what if they were less, or more, stable? Find out with me and @lukebarnesastro at @AlasLewisBarnes

Today I'm going through Geraint Lewis and @lukebarnesastro's @AFortunateUni for a lecture, and I'm really enjoying it! Funny footnotes throughout, and an accessible discussion of quite subtle topics (I just finished a nice section on types of possibility and counterfactuals).

Stable elements for life? Alas Lewis & Barnes https://t.co/OHSk9hhnHn

Come fly with me and the Andromeda Galaxy over New Zealand’s Southern Alps. From this part of the world M31 skirts the horizon. This was my life for the past weekend! #beauty #timelapse https://t.co/H2Xu0MExfn

Asteroid 2020 SO may get captured by Earth from Oct 2020 - May 2021. Current nominal trajectory shows shows capture through L2, and escape through L1. Highly-chaotic path, so be prepared for lots of revisions as new observations come in. @renerpho @nrco0e https://t.co/h4JaG2rHEd https://t.co/RfUaeLtEWq

Had a great chat with @Cosmic_Horizons and @lukebarnesastro  about their book "Cosmic Revolutionary Handbook  @CRHandbook " as well as other science stuff. Stay tuned for the book review and interview https://t.co/EqM3VCRNbt

Quoted @RichardDawkins

In 1665 Cambridge University closed because of plague. Isaac Newton retreated to rural Lincolnshire. During his 2 years in lockdown he worked out calculus, the true meaning of colour, gravitation, planetary orbits & the 3 Laws of Motion. Will 2020 be someone’s Annus Mirabilis?

I bet he didn't have to implement hybrid teaching though, did he? https://t.co/wA8dso9wD8

I think Zoom is really bringing out my artistic abilities. Signed copies available on request. https://t.co/m0MDeG8Qx0

Some cool ongoing research with @lukebarnesastro looking at the fiery physics of the Big Bang - Some exciting “what ifs” about the nature of the universe. Paper coming soon!

A friend just sent me this. Might be the best t-shirt I saw in a while #phdlife https://t.co/Ozo40olEzW

I very much enjoy watching the captions on my cosmology lectures. They do not well capture the words I say. I'm sure you're all familiar with the screaming equation. https://t.co/ldvZVu4nA1

Did you know that the Cosmic Microwave Background was hotter in the past? Your revolutionary new cosmic theory better explain this! @lukebarnesastro and I discuss this in @CRHandbook https://t.co/dtV8gaQpbC

A quick reminder that @arvin_ash's video on fine-tuning is garbage from start to finish. And yet, somehow, has 116k views on YouTube. https://t.co/VV4JnrUPgO

Still true, but now with 137k views. What is the point of doing accurate popular science if anyone with a YouTube account can completely misrepresent an entire field and get 137k views? SMH. https://t.co/Oe9OKTqUkQ
