I believe that communicating science clearly and effectively is an important part of a scientist's job. Cosmology is hugely inspirational for all of us. It connects us with the fundamental questions about the origins and meaning of the Universe.
As professional scientists, we are privileged to be able to actually do cosmology as our day job. Sharing the excitement and the challenges of our work with the public is not only a pleasure, but also a our responsibility towards the taxpayers that ultimately make it possible for us to pursue those questions.
My first book for the public, The Edge of The Sky, will be published by Basic Books in Fall 2014.
