Where is the sky? Not where you might think

A few weeks ago I was giving a talk in a school on my kids book Why Space Matters to Me. At the end a girl asked me what seemed a fairly simple question: “why is the sky up?” My answer was equally simple, but her jaw dropped when I gave it. “It isn’t”. That’s because the majority of the sky is always beneath our feet. Take a look.

No matter where on Earth you are standing, the vast majority of the sky is beneath your feet

I love challenging people’s preconceptions about the world, whether that is school groups or business audiences. As such I have put together some talks on how challenging our preconceptions can lead to innovative thinking within organisations. Find out more here.
