Astronomer, researcher, science pundit, podcaster, geek, nerd, former bullying victim, TV host, PR maven– these are just a few of the things to describe the force that is Dr. Michelle Thaller, NASA’s Deputy Director of Science Communication. In her day-to-day, Michelle spends most of her time teaching the organization, it’s engineers, and the public about how to translate the science of the universe into palatable information and experiences.
