Dr. Stephen Webb

Dr. Stephen Webb

The Open University

Room 335 West Perry
The Open University

Milton Keynes
MK7 1AA
United Kingdom

Stephen Webb obtained his PhD in theoretical physics in 1988, and since then has held positions at several universities in the UK. He was an author on the team that developed Software Teaching of Modular Physics, a hypermedia package that won the European Academic Software Award, and he continues to investigate ways in which technology can improve the understanding of physical and mathematical concepts amongst undergraduate students.
Stephen currently lives and works in Milton Keynes, where he is a member of Open University course teams charged with producing distance learning material for the University's undergraduate and postgraduate courses in mathematics. His first book, "Measuring the Universe: the Cosmological Distance Ladder", was published in 1999. This was followed by the hugely successful "Where is Everybody?" which won the Best Ideas Award from Contact in Context and was shortlisted for the prestigious Aventis prize in 2003.
Stephen’s latest book, "Out of this World", is an exploration of recent ideas in high-energy physics. In his lucid and compelling style, Webb makes strange theories, from tiny particles to huge membranes that may envelope our Universe, engaging and enjoyable.
For relaxation, Stephen enjoys playing football and cricket (at a level that is now more enthusiastic than skilful).

"Where is Everybody?" Shortlisted for the Aventis General Prize 

"Where is Everybody?" Shortlisted for the Aventis General Prize

Celebrating their15th year in 2003, the Aventis Prizes are described as the world’s most prestigious science book awards and recognize the very best in popular science writing. They are managed by the Royal Society, the UK national academy of science, in cooperation with the sponsor Aventis, a world leader in pharmaceuticals. Amongst this year's six shortlisted titles was the Copernicus book "Where is Everybody?" by Stephen Webb.

If the Universe is Teeming with Aliens ... Where is Everybody? 

9780387955018
Stephen Webb presents a detailed discussion of the 50 most cogent and intriguing answers to Fermi’s famous question. The varieties of argument – from first-rate scientists, philosophers, historians, and science fiction authors - are astonishing, entertaining and vigorous intellectual exercises.

What the Judges Said 

Webb, Stephen, Author
“A cleverly handled account of the interface between science and science fiction. Ingenious, bold and fun to read.” TV presenter Carol Vorderman and Dr Frank Douglas of Aventis, presented Stephen with his award and prize money for being shortlisted at a gala dinner in the Science Museum, London.
