In March 2014, in conjunction with BBC Stargazing Live, I got the public to take images of Orion and send them in which I stacked together to make a seriously gorgeous image.

Bright Club

Stand-up comedy - by scientific researchers? What could possibly go wrong? As an Astrophysicist people often have no idea what you do, with hilarious consequences. Watch me make light of this and pull out my Ukulele for a quick Frozen parody.
