Today I’m speaking with Dr. Amber Straughn, an American astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center where she serves as the Deputy Project Scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope, the biggest telescope ever planned to be deployed in space.
I wanted to have Amber on the show because I think knowing the truth about the universe can potentially shed light on the truth of our own existence, the question of God and how likely it is that we aren’t alone in the universe. All big ideas.
In this interview she shares how to see incredible stars even if you live in the city, how likely we’ll find extraterrestrial life in the next 20 years, how the James Webb Space Telescope is like a Transformer, the amazing things it could reveal, and much more.
