Dr. Dunsby is a cosmologist and mathematician, apparently not a frequent astronomical observer. I don't fault him for not recognizing Mars when he sees it.

Mars is currently centered above the 'teapot' asterism in Sagittarius. About one width of the teapot above its brim, exclusive of handle and spout.

Oh dear, what a blooper. I hope he's not being called Professor Dumsby instead behind his back. Even so at least they took it all in good jest.

Surely this is some sort of "fake news". Perhaps a "joke" that was supposed to be made in a week from now (April 1st).

Who would consider this good research? I'm not sure I'm understanding your point. Was it just meant as a cynical jab at science in general?
