Houston, we've gone nuclear!
My episode of IRrelevant Astronomy for NASA finally came out this month and it's going nuclear! We've been featured on Wired, CNET, io9, Escapist, Kotaku, The Mary Sue and many many more. In fact, this afternoon I saw articles written in Spanish, Italian, and Russian. Thanks so much to everyone who Liked, shared, +1'd, and wrote about us!
I was so excited to get to work on this project with Ellen McLain, the amazing voice actress behind GLaDOS in the Portal series, even though I didn't get to meet her in person. And anyone who has followed me for a while knows how much I love Portal. Heck, my husband even proposed by making me a Portal Atari game!
I'm very grateful to writer/producer Tim Pyle for approaching me to work on this. I'm passionate about science and, after taking an astrophysics class in my final year of college taught by the lovely Victoria Kaspi, I was tempted to go back and change my degree entirely! It's an honor to (kinda) get to work for NASA and to help introduce our future world leaders to the majesty of science.
