Looking Up: Getting Astroquizzical

BookCover_Astroquizzical.png
Astroquizzical by Dr. Jillian Scudder

Dr. Jillian Scudder is an astrophysicist who teaches at Oberlin College in Ohio. She started a science blog in 2013 called Astroquizzical with an "ask the scientist" structure.

She's been answering questions ever since and recently released a book based on the blog, Astroquizzical: A Curious Journey Through Our Cosmic Family Tree

She talked about some of her favorite and most common questions with the Cincinnati Observatory's Dean Regas and guest host Lauren Worley, former NASA press secretary.

Dean Regas is the Astronomer for the Cincinnati Observatory and a renowned educator, a national popularizer of astronomy and an expert in observational astronomy.
Anna Hehman is the Director of Development for the Cincinnati Observatory. Her official duties include ensuring the financial security of the Observatory and securing support for its outreach programs as well as exploring relationships with potential funders. Anna also has a Marketing background and manages the Observatory's social media, where she resists the urge to post adorable animal videos on the O's social media accounts with almost 100% success.
