Astronomy Look-alikes, No. 1

Posted in Astronomy Lookalikes with tags , , on December 31, 2009 by telescoper

The other evening, when I was watching Miss Marple on TV, I was struck by the remarkable resemblance between the eponymous detective  (now played by  Julia McKenzie) and  Professor Andy Fabian, the President of the Royal Astronomical Society. I wonder if by any chance they might be related?

This isn’t the only example I can bring to mind of a famous astronomer or cosmologist who bears a strong resemblance to someone famous outside their own sphere, so I’ve decided to run a series of astronomy look-alikes which I’ll post from time to time when I can’t think of anything better to do. You have been warned!
