Few people can turn their hobby into a tool for public benefit. Mark has done just that by broadcasting his love for Astronomy through public education events. My conversation with Mark covers how he does impactful science communication by bringing the Universe down to us in its exquisite detail. We also talk about how anyone can ignite the love for Astronomy in young and old.

Mark’s success proves that a picture is worth a thousand words. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did talking to Mark!
