Scientific truth and Biblical truth: how to hold the two together

Professor Christine Done

Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy, Durham University  

Chris Done is a Professor of Astrophysics at Durham University, researching black holes. She did her PhD at the University of Cambridge and then worked for NASA, where an unexpected highlight was being part of the team in Mission Control commanding a telescope in the payload bay of the Space Shuttle. On her return to the UK, she worked in the space science group at Leicester University, before moving to Durham. She has just returned from a sabbatical year in Tokyo with the Japanese space agency, JAXA. 

She is a Christian, and leads Alpha courses for people exploring faith at her local church. She is a regular speaker on science and faith, appearing in the Songs of Praise episode marking the International Year of Astronomy, and giving a recent BBC radio 4 Lent talk.
