Encyclopedia for non-astronomers

This page is under construction so until I fix it, the links lead to my old, non-mobile-friendly version. Except this one about redshift!!!

I wrote most of these articles when I was a student, so some of them may need a brush-up/update.

Here you'll find brief introductions to some of the exciting stuff that I spend my time with. More will come along the way. If something doesn't make sense, or if you have further questions, just get in touch.
