Eclipse Of The Century
The Great American Eclipse Tour: Our Experts
Dr Marek Kukula
Marek obtained his PhD in Radio Astronomy at Jodrell Bank Observatory then carried out research into galaxies and black holes at a number of institutions including the Space Telescope Science Institute, home of the Hubble Space Telescope.
As the Public Astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich he gives talks, curates exhibitions and liaises with scientists and the media.
Marek is also a judge on the Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition and is the author of The Intimate Universe and the co-author of The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who, both published in 2015.
Dr Edward Gillen
Ed is an astronomer at the University of Cambridge whose research focuses on discovering new planets and binary stars in our Galaxy.
Of particular interest to him is how stars, and the planets that orbit them, form and evolve throughout their lifetimes. One aspect of his research is the study of eclipses and so he is very excited by the prospect of witnessing another solar eclipse!
He obtained his PhD on young stars from the University of Oxford and has previously worked on black holes and comets at the University of Durham. Beyond astrophysics, he is a keen squash player, and enjoys playing football, tennis and cricket (as well as just about any other sport on offer!). He also has a love of travelling and exploring new places.
