About the Speaker: The following is an excerpt from Dr. Howe’s blog: “I grew up with a love of all things science. I received a Ph.D. in astrophysics from Princeton University in 2016, and I am currently a postdoc at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. My research centers around the atmospheres of extrasolar planets, particularly with regard to determining what they are made of.” When he isn’t doing research for NASA, Dr. Howe enjoys writing science fiction short stories, novels, and nonfiction essays, some of which you can find on his blog.
