Day 2: SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE

Tune in at 7pm on our Facebook page for a special presentation by Dr. Natalie Hinkel with the Southwest Research Institute. 

Dr. Natalie Hinkel

BIO: Dr. Natalie Hinkel is a planetary astrophysicist at the Southwest Research Institute. She studies the composition of stars near to the Sun, which she also uses to understand the make-up of planets outside our Solar System, or exoplanets -- since stars and planets are formed at the same time. She developed and operates the largest database of elements measured inside stars called the Hypatia Catalog. George Takei (a.k.a. Mr. Sulu from the original Star Trek) once said Dr. Hinkel was "a trailblazer."
