Exoplanet Demographics Conference (NASA)
As a sci-fi writer, I love getting to chat with scientists about their work, which is always rife with story ideas. Thanks to my friend and fellow writer Heather Clitheroe, I was able to participate in a STEAM collaboration between writers and scientists during the 2020 CalTech Exoplanet Demographics Conference, hosted by the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute. I was assigned a presentation by Daniel Thorngren, PostDoc at the University of Montreal, who was kind enough to spend over an hour on Zoom with me explaining his research on Hot Jupiters. I then wrote a short story inspired by his work, which appears in this e-zine.
