Jane A Green - Basketballs and Beyond

Wednesday 18th March, Sportshall, Woodrow High House,



A unique illustrated voyage, beginning with ‘something of nothing’ and journeying to all that is everything – using perspective to capture the awesome, inspiring and, above all, enjoyable wonders of the cosmos.

Jane A Green is a professional speaker, author and broadcaster who has co-presented with the late Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS, celebrities and media professionals, and has been featured in various astronomy publications and scripted a live television/theatre interview with the second man on the moon, US astronaut Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin.
 
She has been a guest on BBC Radio Four’s Midweek programme, BBC Two’s Stargazing Live, various national and local BBC Radio stations and, most recently, co-presenter of the TOUR OF THE UNIVERSE 2014 – a national theatre tour appearing with the presenters of television’s Sky at Night programme and other high-profile speakers – she is currently Uckfield 105FM’s resident astronomer and a co-host of Astronomy FM Under British Skies.
 
Her book, the Haynes Astronomy Manual, is an international best-seller and was listed at No 6 on Amazon’s ‘List of Collectible Astronomers Books for 2011’.
 
As Dr Brian May states, Jane has “… taken up the challenge of doing for a new generation what Sir Patrick did for us all those years ago”.
 Her enthusiasm, as with the science of astronomy, is infectious.
