Personal Quotes (3)

I was on with Sigourney Weaver, and we chatted about Alien (1979), my favourite film since I was 11. For as long as I can remember, all I ever wanted to do was to be involved in science and space flight and astronomy. (On The Graham Norton Show (2007))
I'm mainly interested in making Britain a more scientific nation. Science and engineering should be celebrated and promoted. We spent more on bailing out the banks than we've spent on science since the time of Jesus! And yet we're the nation that created the Industrial Revolution.
The universe and astronomy are the easiest sell in the world. You're talking about galaxies of a hundred billion stars and moons of ice with oceans below the surface - it's not hard to get the public interested.
