Ha there is no escape  8)

Also did some bits for BBC 5live, BBC TV news, and ITN, as well as the Guardian and the Observer, so think yourself lucky you weren't in the UK for TA saturation coverage  :P

And then I went to the bluedot festival at Jodrell Bank to give a talk, which was made challenging by some band banging out some loud tunes about 150m away across the field, and the AV system collapsing at the start, leaving me having to ad lib for 20 minutes. Science comedy gold (I hope)  :o

Perhaps you should be the support act for Dingwalls, lol. You know how Jem likes his alternative style support acts.

Weirdly enough, I was thinking about this this morning, me giving a whizz-bang sciencey talk as a support act to a band. I wasn't thinking about Frost*, but another musical friend of mine, but hey, if the boss is up for it ...  8)

My talks are full of cool pictures, videos, music, daft jokes, and more, as well as space and science, and do seem to go down a treat (just gave one this lunchtime to a whole bunch of teachers), so I'm ready if the world is  :P

(I've also done big live shows with Buzz Aldrin: that's got to help, right?)

I see the ESA is looking for names for their Mars rover.

As SpacyMcSpaceface probably isn't going to get far, how about Frosty?!  ;D ;)

Calling it after our favourite drummer is probably not a great idea :D

And whilst not exactly Frost*, it will be a Lonely Robot...
