Astronomy Meets Adventure in Kenya – We need your help!

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/total-solar-eclipse-kenya-2013/x/4396311

We choose to boldly go to explore – okay it’s not into space (though I’d certainly be happy to go there too!) but it is for an incredible Astronomical Event. We are headed to Kenya, a remote place (hey space is definitely remote too so they have that in common!) that should be amazing to explore for our next Astronaut Leadership Experience. We’d like to be able to broadcast the amazing solar eclipse from there with running commentary from experts to the world to excite more people about Science, Technology, Engineering & Math…. but we need your help!! Check out the link to see how you can help make this happen!!

Ask An Astronaut

I know many of you have questions that you would love to ask an astronaut so I have an idea…. 

Periodically I am going to post a “Request for Questions” to Twitter (don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @spacechelle) that you would like to ask an astronaut and each time I will pick one question to get answered. Instead of it just being a written response (which is generally the most common way this is done on social media) I will get a video of the response and post it. 

In order for your question to be considered please pay attention to the following

  • Your question my be Tweeted to @spacechelle
  • You must include #AskAnAstro
  • Please don’t ask “How do you go to the bathroom in space” I can pretty much guarantee you that question will not be selected

I hope you all have fun with this. I can’t wait to hear what great questions roll in.

Astronauts and Teamwork and Biomed… Oh My!

Don’t ask why but yet again I end up with the “Wizard of Oz” sayings (of sort in my head)… (If you’re not getting what I mean think “Lions and Tigers and Bears.. Oh my!”)

I was so busy during the King’s College Mission Discovery that I didn’t have time to blog at all! Sorry about that.

Once again we had an absolutely amazing event at King’s College that included astronaut Ken Ham (live and in person!), NASA Space Scientist Dr. Liz Warren via Skype, King’s College Professors & lecturers on a variety of topics about Biomed & Space, Chris Barber the DIrector of ISSET and myself. Needless to say it was a very full week of sooooooo much information and inspiration!

Everyone at King’s had an amazing time and we were delighted to meet so many bright minds! In fact the Mission Discovery this year went so well at King’s that they have reserved dates for a 2014 King’s Mission Discovery already!!!
