Astronomy Look-alikes, No. 98

Posted in Astronomy Lookalikes with tags , on June 20, 2017 by telescoper

I’ve been reminded that it has been a while since I last posted an Astronomy Look-alike so I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the spectacular similarity between Professor Will Percival of the University of Portsmouth and TV presenter Richard Osman? Is it pointless to ask whether they might possibly be related?

Heavens above!

It has been drawn to my attention that there is a remarkable similarity in visual appearance between planetary astronomer Albert Einstein and the creator of the theory of general relativity Jean-Pierre Bibring. I wonder if, by any chance, they might be related?

I wonder if anyone else has noticed the resemblance between Coel Hellier, Founder and Head of International Rescue, and Jeff Tracey, Professor of Astrophysics at Keele University? Thunderbirds are go!

Perhaps the UK space programme could benefit significantly from the assistance of his organisation?

I’m struck by the similarity in visual appearance between distinguished astrophysicist Herr Professor Dr Auric Goldfinger and infamous Bond villain Reinhard Genzel. I wonder if by any chance they might be related?

I’m struck by the similarity between astronomer Karl Glazebrook of Swinburne University, Melbourne (in Australia) and comedian Peter Kay from Lancashire (in the Midlands). I wonder if by any chance they might be related?

Astronomy (and Particle Physics) Look-alikes, No. 92

Although it’s not strictly an astronomical observation, I am struck by the resemblance between the distinguished particle physicist and blogger Professor Alfred E. Neuman, of University College London, and the iconic cover boy of Mad Magazine, Jon Butterworth. This could explain a lot about the Large Hadron Collider.
