He currently works for Airbus of Filton.
The Universeby Leo Marriott
The Universe is big! If you could propel a space craft at the speed of light, closest neighbor the Andromeda Galaxy, is 2.5 million years away. It would take 12 billion years to reach the object that is furthest away from us( and still receding): thats almost as long as the Universe itself has existed.
