In 1969, we reached the moon. With each step on its surface, every year an astronaut orbits our planet and with every dream of the possibilities beyond – a new generation falls in love with space exploration. Fifty years after Apollo 11, today’s NASA astronauts, voices from the Apollo Era and students from the Mars generation are brought together to share their journeys and to remember an unforgettable moment.
 
“Share your science” is a new story collection from scientists at the NASA Ames Research Center. The Ames Science Directorate comprises of researchers from the Earth, Space, and Biosciences Divisions. We are sharing this collection to showcase the breadth of fascinating research and to capture personal stories, challenges, discussions about diversity, science communication, and special moments scientists would like to share along their journey. Our aim is to foster a welcoming space and insp ...

As a theoretical planetary scientist, Dr. Natasha Batalha does not work in a lab or stare down the eye of a telescope. Natasha's work involves taking basic physical concepts and folding them into computer programs that help us predict a planet's climate or atmosphere.By 660401
 
Trained as a cell and development biologist, Dr. Sigrid Reinsch works on spaceflight experiments with frogs, zebrafish, and tardigrades in order to understand the biology of the effects of the space environment on these organisms.By 660401
 
Dr. Mary Beth Wilhelm is a research space scientist at NASA Ames Research Centre. In this interview, Mary Beth talks about lab hopping, visiting five continents in five months, winning the Ames Early Career Researcher Award, and her hopes for the future. We also discuss the astrobiology research that has taken her to some of the coldest and driest …
 
Listen in as NASA biologist Niki Parenteau describes her science journey from farmer's daughter to studying life forms in the lab and mentoring students, to designing biology experiments for astronomers searching for life outside Earth's solar system.By 660401
 
NASA’s International Space Station program manager Joel Montalbano gathers with leaders from partner space agencies during a panel to discuss the importance and evolution of the international partnership and collaboration that has enabled more than 20 years of continuous human presence aboard the orbiting laboratory. HWHAP Episode 195.…
 
Interested in building an instrument to fly to Mars? Listen in as Dave Blake - race car engine builder, biologist, geologist, and spacecraft instrument designer extraordinaire - describes his science journey.By 660401
 
An astrobiologist, a bioinformation, and a microbial ecologist are just a few of the passions that make up Parag Vaishampayan's science journey. At NASA's Ames Research Center, Parag is space biology portfolio scientist.By 660401
 
Dr. David Des Marais is a senior space scientist at NASA Ames Research Center. In this interview, we talk about his research into the role of carbon on Earth and in space, what Mars could teach us about life on Earth, and the excitement of watching the Mars rovers land. Finally, we discuss how space exploration brings people together, uniting curio…
 
Dr. Rama Nemani, Senior Earth Scientist at the NASA Ames Research Center, works on ecological forecasting. In this interview, we discuss how Rama’s career trajectory moved from farming to supercomputing, NASA Earth Exchange (NEX), the difference between simulation modeling and data analysis, and what’s hiding in the woods in Montana.…
 
Diana Gentry, a research scientist at NASA Ames Research Center, studies aerobiology (microbes in clouds), biodiversity, biomaterials, and biological systems. Diana describes herself as at the nexus of both science and engineering where she speaks both languages and translates back and forth, helping scientists and engineers better understand what …
 
Dr. Matthew Johnson's research is in atmospheric chemistry, a branch of atmospheric science, which looks at the composition and chemistry of Earth's atmosphere, such as aerosols and trace gas emissions, and how particles may impact human health. Dr. Johnson's research interest is in combining remotely-sensed, modeling, and "in situ" (meaning locall…
 
Dr. Dan Whitt studies currents and the circulation of nutrients in ocean ecosystems. Dan describes his Ph.D. research on internal waves ‒ oscillations found where the ocean is stratified by density ‒ and compares this effect to an expertly-poured Arnold Palmer. The drink should form two layers, as the iced tea is less dense than sugary lemonade: “w…
 
Dr. Ella Sciamma-O’Brien is a research scientist in laboratory astrophysics and planetary science. As a member of the Astrophysics and Astrochemistry Laboratory at NASA Ames Research Center, Dr. Sciamma-O’Brien has been working on the Titan Haze Simulation (THS) experiment, developed on the NASA Ames Cosmic Simulation Chamber (COSmiC). In this inte…
 
Dr. Naseem Rangwala is an astrophysicist and project scientist for the SOFIA mission. SOFIA, or the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, is a modified Boeing 747 airplane carrying a large telescope. SOFIA observes the universe through long infrared wavelengths. As project scientist, Dr. Rangwala is responsible for managing the impactfu…
 
Dr. Charles Gatebe's research focus is on clouds aerosols, ecosystem structure and function, albedo, and feedbacks to climate. In this interview, we chat about his science journey pursuing science, starting with his interest in studying Kenya’s air pollution, and how his research eventually led him to NASA.…
 
Dr. Chris Potter is a Research Scientist in Earth Science at the NASA Ames Research Center. In this interview, we discuss his research that is part of the collective project, the rapid response and novel research in earth science, which explores connections between COVID-19 and the environment. We also chat about field campaigns and working as a sc…
 
Dr. Tori Hoehler is a scientist at NASA Ames, with a background in chemistry and oceanography. He now studies the interaction of microbial communities with their environment, with an emphasis on the habitability of environments beyond Earth and the detectability of any life that may reside there.By 612009
