Jonathan Lindström

Jonathan Lindström lives in Stockholm with his wife and two children. He was born in 1962 and is proud to have seen the moon landing on TV. He is an archaeologist and has written several articles in popular science magazines and books. He also considers himself amateur astronomer with a special interest in Jupiter and Mars and the Milky Way itself. However he considers himself a student of all sciences. It is the different ways one act as an intermediary in order to share knowledge that has caused Linström to write and illustrate books. Jonathan says what fascinates him with science is the path to discovery, the constant mentality to question every conventional wisdom or fact. Also the skill, finesse and ingeniousness that is used to obtain new knowledge but also the funny and almost odd details that surround the efforts to understand the most fundamental and serious questions.
