When Nic Bonne was a child his face would be pressed against the television screen staring at images from space.
He now works as an astronomer at the University of Portsmouth, where being blind doesn't stop him from following his life-long interest.
He uses 3D-printed models to represent the light being emitted by far off objects.
He also runs stargazing events to encourage more people to follow his passion.
