Description

Michelle Thaller, science communicator at NASA Goddard, discusses how she persisted in following her scientific passions even after being discouraged by teachers and guidance counselors. She also talked about why non-scientists should care about things so far away from Earth: "I think we're richer as a species to know what the origins of our planet." A culture that invests in science, innovation becomes more prosperous. (Recorded 11 December 2018)
