Short biography
Martin Beech teaches astronomy at Campion College, The University of Regina. His main research interests have focused on the smaller objects that reside in the solar system; asteroids, comets and meteorites. Asteroid 12343 martinbeech has been named for his research relating to the Leonid meteoroid stream, but he has published on topics as diverse as the works of graphic artist M. C. Escher, the folklore of mushrooms, the writer Thomas Hardy, and the formation of massive stars. In addition to interests in the history of science, scientific instruments and meteorite hunting, he
is also actively concerned with the issues relating to global warming,
global overpopulation and climate change. He lives in Regina, with his wife, Georgette, and a somewhat motley collection of three dogs and three cats. [from page vii of Terraforming]
