This is a question I’ve been getting a lot recently with my new job. Just a few weeks ago I left my job at MIT in Boston to move to Houston to come work at NASA as a science communications specialist for the International Space Station.
My love of space is no secret. I worked as a space reporter at MIT, I wear space inspired style all the time and will never pass up the opportunity to watch a launch livestream.
But when you are willing to dedicate so much of your life to something, you get some people asking why. Especially when it’s space and people ask you the standard, “Why worry about space when there are problems here on Earth?”
