Maggie Aderin-Pocock, spiced lamb & plum tagine and prosecco
Nick and Angela welcome a professional stargazer to Dish HQ.
Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE is a renowned space and science educator and a prominent figure in the field of astronomy. She began watching the skies from her council flat in North London as a child and went on to study physics and mechanical engineering at Imperial College London. It is Maggie’s ambition to go to space one day and last year she was named a ‘Barbie Role Model’ for her work promoting science careers to girls. She became the co-host of the BBC’s The Sky at Night in 2007 succeeding Sir Patrick Moore. Her new book The Art of Stargazing is out now.
Maggie is a big fan of bubbles so Nick kicks off proceedings with a bottle of the award-winning Waitrose Blueprint Prosecco DOC while Angela prepares Martha Collison’s delicious spiced lamb & plum tagine with a side of couscous.
This conversation will take you to the moon and back, literally! Maggie talks about life on other planets, growing food on Mars and how her allergies to brazil nuts and dairy affect her life.
