#38 – Black Holes, Mud Balls, and David Bowie (Nicole Gugliucci)

I originally met Nicole on twitter, and then for some strange reason she was one of the few women nerdy enough to come on the video chat. I met her in person for the first time last February in Florida when for some strange reason I was picked to be a twitter correspondent for the SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) launch at KSC (I seemed to remember she was quite intimidating, although it may be due to my dorkiness). Since then I keep running into her, either due to her involvement with the new IIG (Independent Investigations Group) in Washington, DC, organizing SkeptiCamp DC, or other places such as the PFA show at Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA.

For the first time since I’ve known her, I had the unique opportunity to seriously interview her. I had planned to ask her deep questions about her research, astronomy, and all sorts of super-intelligent kind of stuff (can you tell I’m not an academic?). Of course, we spent most of the time cracking snarky jokes and being silly.

Thank you very much, Nicole, it is always a pleasure hanging out with the cutest and most brilliant radio astronomer that I know.

Thank also to everyone who, instead of leaving the house to do something social on a friday night, stayed home and sat in front of your computer, “virtually” doing something social instead.
