Landing on Mars is difficult and not always successful. Well-designed advance testing helps. An ambitious NASA Mars rover mission set to launch in 2020 will rely on a special parachute to slow the spacecraft down as it enters the Martian atmosphere at over 12,000 mph (5.4 kilometers per second). Preparations for this mission have provided, for the first time, dramatic video of the parachute opening at supersonic speed. The Mars 2020 mission will seek signs of ancient Martian life by investiga...

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO's unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b. It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO's Extremely ...

    A Little About Me

    I am a keen sportsman, my passion is rugby union. I make every effort to attend rugby events around the World supporting my National side. I also play squash, football and ski. I also cycle and go to the gym in order to try and keep some level of fitness.

    My greatest achievement in recent times is that I completed an unsupported ‘End to End’ bicycle ride of Great Britain. This involved riding from the most North Easterly point (John O’Groats) to the most South Westerly point  (Lands End). It was the hardest yet most enjoyable and rewarding experience of my life and a substantial amount of money was raised for charity in the process.

    Living in close to the European Alps, I am a keen hiker and often go trekking in the mountains as well as ski in the winter. I like to read and go to concerts. I also like to socialise and meet new people.

    Lastly, I am learning to speak German. I am progressing along the required programme timeline; I can speak German to Mittelstrufe level, which (as the certificate states) requires one to communicate spontaneously and fluently with native speakers about a broad spectrum of topics.
