We really hope you enjoy this one! We had a chance to talk with Megan Watzke, who is the Press Officer for the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
Megan Watzke has spent her career sharing the wonders of science with the widest range of audiences possible. From her role as the press officer for NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory to her “public science” projects that inject science into daily experiences, she seeks to de-stigmatize science for everyone, but especially for underrepresented groups including women.
If you haven’t ever heard of Chandra, don’t know what an X-ray is, or just love space, we highly recommend listening to this episode!
In addition to serving as the Press Officer for Chandra, she has also recently released a few books.
