A new AR project with the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard + Smithsonian.

This summer will bring a number of activities celebrating the Chandra X-ray Observatory’s 20th anniversary as well as the 50th anniversary of the lunar landings.  Check out my events calendar for details.   I am also developing new augmented reality and virtual reality projects, new video, and a brand new podcast, "Science by Design."


It all started when…

I was working in molecular biology and public health when I was hired for NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory in 1998. Since I always wanted to be an astronaut when I was little, this opportunity got me close to the cosmos but without the long distance commute. Today, I use data to tell stories about science, whether in the form of a 3D print of an exploded star, a book about light, or a Virtual Reality application in high-energy astrophysics.
