Ethics and astronomy

- Castel Gandolfo on Lake Albano

I see that the pope is about to go to his summer home, Castel Gandolfo, and that reminded me of Vatican astronomer and Jesuit brother Guy Consolmagno because he and the meteorite collection he cares for live there.

- Br. Guy and the Vatican's meteorite collection

Here's a video (part 1 of 2) of Brother Guy giving a talk about ethics and astronomy, mentioning issues from meteorite hunters to global warming to asteroid belt mining to the worth of dark night skies - I found it really fascinating.
