Exposing PseudoAstronomy


From time to time I stumble across a well written excellent site that really hits home for me.    Today I found the Exposing PseudoAstronomy blog.

The author,  Stuart Robbins, is a graduate student in astronomy, focusing on planetary geophysics.   His current research is in craters on Mars, and Saturn’s rings,  but his interests include planetary surfaces in general and astronomy education.

I find his writing to be tight, concise, and to the point.  There was a distinct lack of the histrionics that are frequently found on blogs, and only a little bit of sarcastic attitude (which he politely apologized for).

Good job, Stuart, and keep up the good work!

One thought on “Exposing PseudoAstronomy

  1. Thanks! As I say in my blog, I really do try to avoid the ad hominems and other such personal attacks and just try to address the issues. I’m slightly surprised that you find my writing to be concise since sometimes I think I’ve blathered on about the topic forever, and yet hardly scratched the surface. But I try!

    If folks like the blog, PLEASE leave comments on it, as that’s the only way I can really get good feedback.
