Welcome to ‘Explaining Science’

I have always prided myself in explaining scientific ideas clearly in an appropriate way to whoever is listening or reading – hence the title of this website.

I intend to devote this website to explaining scientific concepts, as well as why science is such a powerful way to interpret the world around us (and the rest of the Universe beyond).

I hope to catalogue good and bad examples of science explanation, and not just to blog the latest science news; there are hundreds of websites out there that do that. Having said that, if a particular science news story catches my eye, I might link to it and comment on it.

If you have any questions about science – perhaps you are confused by something or you are wondering how you might explain something to your child or a friend – then do contact me. You’ll find my e-mail address at the top right of each page of this website.
