  1. “..it’s not that spectacular, and lots of things about it are really disappointingly mediocre.”

    Loved this, Peter. Maynooth has clearly infused you with that wonderfully morose Irish spirit.: “Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy that sustained him through temporary periods of joy.”

    I’m sure you recognise the source of the quote.

  2. Lazy old stars eh! Excellent introduction to your lecture series. I can see you presenting a BBC2 series set in a disused Open University studio, the occasional diagram and rostrum camera sequence to liven things up. No CGI allowed.

  3. Is it not a bit like climate vs weather? I don’t find it that strange that we can model the universe as a whole, but find it much more difficult to describe on smaller scales
