Welcome to One Blue Planet

About One Blue Planet

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler” — Albert Einstein

That is, unfortunately, a lie. Einstein probably never said that, though he did mention his belief that science should represent reality as simply as possible. Nevertheless, the quote is a good one. Science belongs to us all, a collective treasure of humanity. It should be shared and understood by everyone.

Sadly, modern science and journalism falls short. Scientists write with complicated words and formula; journalists misunderstand and confuse things, or worse, mislead. One Blue Planet is an effort to change that. I am a trained physicist, a former astronomer and now work in the space industry. My goal is to explain the latest in physics and space as clearly and as simply as possible.

This publication is available on Medium and Substack. On Medium you’ll find at least one featured article published each week. If you also sign up for our Substack newsletter, you’ll receive two emails a week, covering the latest news and findings from physics, astronomy and the space industry.
