About the Event
And so in 2006 New Horizons was launched, its remit - to study Pluto, its moon Charon and any other smaller moons that might be discovered en route. But it was also clear that other more distant targets should be sought with a view to see these tiny frozen worlds close up. Being essentially extremely old and unaltered, these relics might be the key to how the planets formed.
Greg has essentially two astronomical careers. Firstly, as a specialist planetarium presenter for the Royal Observatory Greenwich. This consists of presenting planetarium shows to schools and public alike but also providing teaching artworks and slides for the many school and public courses. He has also been asked to cover corporate evenings, TV presentations and provide engaging discourses for the ROG winter programme ‘An Evening with the Stars’.
Secondly, Greg is a supplier of diagrams and celestial maps for Astronomy Now magazine and has also written a few articles occasionally.
