How much does he earn?: No 35: Professor Sir Martin Rees, last week appointed the 15th Astronomer Royal (from next January).
Sunday 03 July 1994
Perks: Kudos as the 'Poet Laureate of the night sky' (he is already a distinguished scholar). The Astronomer Royal lost his responsibilities when the post was separated from the directorship of the Royal Greenwich Observatory; but 'as there is no analogous post for the other sciences one should take every opportunity to speak up for science as a whole'.
Home: A house in Cambridge.
