Ever wonder why Moon craters (and craters in general) are perfectly round?

Or, perhaps you wondered why you never wondered?

That completes a Holiday Twitter thread of 13 posts. I do this barely once a year.

Thank you for your persistent interest in all my efforts to bring the Universe down to Earth.

The full compilation of books I’ve written, co-written, written a Chapter in, written a Foreword for, are all here for your perusal.

Still sad about Pluto? Get over it.

Here’s the whole story, from discovery to first-hand account of its demotion. Don’t blame me. I was an accessory, yes. But Pluto had it coming.

Know anyone ready for the next level? Two of my colleagues and I wrote “Welcome to the Universe: An Astrophysical Tour”, based on an introductory course we co-taught at Princeton back when I was on the faculty there.

The popular StarTalk book also has a Young Readers Edition. As fun and educational as the original, but with all the stuff removed that would otherwise prevent a PG-13 rating.

A personal favorite - my six-part video for The Great Courses series: “The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries”. Yup, it highlights the bleeding frontier of cosmic discovery, leaving you as mind-blown & befuddled as the rest of us.

Got precocious kids in your life — age 7 to 12? Want to boost their geek quotient? Consider “Astrophysics For YOUNG People In A Hurry”. You may just stop asking what they want to be when they grow up.

The first StarTalk Book remains a fan-favorite. Highly illustrated and chock-full of fun content inspired by the StarTalk show. And you know it’s a big beautiful (giftable) book because National Geographic published it.

Over time I’ve responded to letters from complete strangers, asking questions that range from Aliens, to God, to the meaning of life, to raising children. Interested? Consider “Letters from an Astrophysicist”.

FYI: Audio Book narrated in my voice.

If you are never in a hurry, then continue to ignore “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.” It’s for anyone who seeks basic fluency in my field — but doesn’t have time to read fat books.

FYI: Audio Book narrated in my voice.

Know anybody who likes history? Consider “Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the Military.” 500 pages that explore connections between my profession and centuries of military conflict.

Oh, and those same fan-designed Tee-shirt images come in PopSockets too.

Fictional (and real) Starships.

Mesmerizing. Just Mesmerizing.

Ten After Ten.

Not too early in the morning.
Not too late in the evening.
Not too “on-time”.
Not too tardy.
A good time anywhere in the universe.

I happen to like Ten After Ten.

If Space Aliens studied Earth culture, they might wonder why the Time in printed ads is usually Ten Minutes After Ten.

Could all these watches, and the people who wear them, be frozen in some Phantom Zone and need to be set free?
