There is no environment more epic than space. But does astronomy, conducted on computers and through telescopes, count as adventure? We spoke with two astronomers this month to learn more, including Sheila Kanani.
Dr. Sheila Kanani is a British astronomer and the Education, Outreach and Diversity Officer at the Royal Astronomical Society. She has presented programmes for the BBC, and is dedicated to improving the representation of girls and women in physics and identifying new ways to take astronomy and physics to underrepresented communities. Her children's book, How To Be An Astronaut and Other Space Jobs, written with illustrator and graphic designer Sol Linero, was published in 2019 by Nosy Crow and was shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award.
