Does anyone out there just hate all the stars?
Despise every planet from Neptune to Mars?
Loathe the mere sight of an asteroid or comet?
Look at the Moon and just instantly vomit?
As an astrophysicist, my research revolves around understanding how planets form and how their orbits change (more detail here).
To keep science fun and understandable, sometimes I write Dr Seuss-inspired poems about astronomy. I just published a book of astronomy poems, illustrated by my son Owen and with a foreword by Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Below are links to other astronomy poems I’ve written on the blog.
- Vega: A planetary poem
- An Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of a cool star (only 2 stanzas)
- Another planet in Kepler-186?
- A Proxima poem: Is our closest neighbor an Eyeball planet
- Ode to 7 orbs (The TRAPPIST-1 system)
- The MOJO videos
- Can moons orbit moons? (the poem)
- Asteroids — the poem
