On June 13th, 2012, I gave a talk at the Durham Regional Astronomical Association. The primary focus of the talk was my effort to help save the James Webb Space Telescope, a project which was in a very serious funding crisis until November of last year.

My short film 'Vision' won the SaveJWST video competition, and hopefully made some small difference in getting the Webb's funding back on track. As a prize I was awarded an hour's worth of observing time on the 2-meter Faulkes Telescope.

During the talk I also highlighted some of the astronomy-based content from my blog that has generated buzz, talked about the importance of skeptical activism, and tried to illustrate the power of using art to promote science.
