Comrade Piers Bizony

Piers has written about science, aerospace and cosmology for a wide variety of magazines in the UK and the US. 2001: Filming the Future, his award-winning book on the making of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, has become a standard reference work. It was also the basis for a C4 documentary film.

In 1997, The Rivers of Mars, his critically acclaimed analysis of the life on Mars debate, was shortlisted for the NASA/Eugene M. Emme Award for Astronautical Writing, while his acclaimed book The Man Who Ran the Moon told the story of NASA’s lunar-era chief for the first time: not Wernher von Braun, but a North Carolina lawyer named Jim Webb. Invisible Worlds (Weidenfeld & Nicholson) explored the borderland where 21st Century science meets art.

Bizony also helped create the Millennium Fund bid for the At-Bristol complex in the UK. Bizony also created, wrote, picture-researched and project-managed  Space: 50, a major colour book collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and worldwide publishers HarperCollins, marking the 50th anniversary of Sputnik. His recent project, Atom, a tie-in book for a BBC TV series, tells the dramatic story of the rivalries and passions at play during the discovery of quantum physics.
