Observatory Manager

Name Stan Waterman
Position Observatory Manager
I am interested in scientific advances in any field but particularly in evolutionary biology and cosmology. I’m particularly fascinated by the deep mystery of life and the universe and how they interact. Is life very common throughout the universe? Is life to the same design everywhere, i.e. did it have a common origin perhaps 10 billion years ago or is each stellar system different, or each galaxy or cluster of galaxies? And the universe clearly has a big effect on living things; do living things have a significant effect on the universe?
