This week we are airing Fraser's pre-recorded interview with Dr. Amanda Hendrix, Senior Scientist at PSI. Amanda studies solar system bodies in ultraviolet wavelengths and is the Director/PI of the NASA Toolbox for Research and Exploration (TREX) team, a branch of NASA's Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI).
This week we are excited to welcome Chelsea "Foxanne" Gohd, Senior Writer at Space.com, to the WSH. Chelsea writes articles and creates, scripts, and hosts videos about science topics ranging from climate change to exoplanet exploration and human spaceflight. In November 2020, Chelsea became an analog astronaut after having completed an analog Mars mission at HI-SEAS** with six other women. Their mission, Sensoria M2, is only the second ever all-female crew at HI-SEAS.
This week we are airing Fraser's prerecorded interview with Dr. Ronald Mallett, Professor Emeritus and Research Professor of Physics at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. Ron hypothesizes that a rotating ring laser could, via frame dragging, sufficiently twist space-time to mimic the conditions inside a rotating Black Hole, potentially allowing a binary message (encoded in a neutrino stream) to be sent back in time.
This week we are excited to welcome "Professional Martian" Dr. Tanya Harrison to the WSH. Tanya is a respected Mars expert who worked as a geoscientist and mission operations specialist on multiple NASA Mars missions over the past 13 years, including the Opportunity, Curiosity, and Perseverance rovers, and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
