Please join for the Chandler #ScienceCafé at Hack Night, “Mission to Mars,” with Rebeca Rodriguez, M.S., Space Management, Aerospace Engineer & Founder, Xplore BoX.

Rebecca spent two weeks along with seven other team members from five different countries on a simulated mission at the Mars Desert Research Station, Utah. The Mars Desert Research Station is operated by the Mars Society to further the Society’s ultimate goal to explore and settle the Red Planet. Rebecca will talk about her experience at this Mars Analog Research Station, a laboratory for learning how to live and work on another planet. 

In addition, Rebecca is a STEM education entrepreneur and the Founder of Xplore BoX, a subscription service where students receive a package with carefully selected projects and activities to explore the science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

“When I was 11 years old I visited NASA Johnson Space Center and from that moment on I was hooked on space exploration and science research. Fortunately, my parents were highly involved and provided many hands-on activities like model rocketry to fuel my passion of becoming an aerospace engineer. I credit those hands-on experiences that showed me the application of all the theory I was learning in school to the success of completing my aerospace engineering degree and master’s in space management. The hands-on projects and experiments kept me focused on what I would be doing after school. Once I was working in the space sector, I noticed kids did not have the same hands-on opportunities I did and therefore decided to start Xplore BoX. I hope Xplore BoX facilitates a convenient way to expose your children to the sciences and that it sparks and nurtures their interests.”

Science Cafés are live—and lively—events that take place in casual settings, are open to everyone, and feature an engaging conversation with a scientist about a particular topic. Chandler Science Cafe, first Wednesday of the month, 7pm, at Gangplank Chandler is presented in association with the Arizona SciTech Festival and Gangplank Labs Initiative.

Free, open to the public, all welcome.

NASA’s #Asteroid Initiative seeks to combine Near Earth Object collision mitigation, commercial exploitation of asteroids and the development of Earth-to-Mars technology in one initiative. Are we biting off more than we can chew?

Our discussion will be led by Garrick Williams, Young Professionals chair for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) as well as the External Chair for the Orbital Early Career Network (OECN) at Orbital Sciences in Chandler. “We may drift a bit to talk about the overall roadmap for the SLS/commercial crew/later beyond earth orbit proposals,” said Williams. Other guests include representatives from National Space Society.

I'm struggling between sentiment and use with some of my accumulated stuff. So I'm taking The Cure:

"An outbox in your home makes it easier - much easier - to let go of things that you no longer need...

"The Outbox is not garbage, nor does it need to be an actual box; it is a halfway house where things sit while their fate is being decided. You should never be afraid to put something in the Outbox."

Please join us for the Chandler #ScienceCafé at Hack Night, “Good Health is Possible at Any Size,” featuring Siddhartha Angadi, PhD,, Assistant Professor, School of Nutrition and Health Promotion, Arizona State University. Dr. Angadi is a #physiologist who studies the effects of diet and exercise on cardiovascular function in health and disease.

“The interesting thing is that when one evaluates metabolic health, it is often at odds with a person’s appearance,” Dr. Angadi said about his research. “For instance, almost 48 percent of obese individuals and 63 percent of overweight individuals are considered metabolically healthy. Whereas, 25 percent of normal weight individuals are metabolically unhealthy.”

“It is important to keep in mind that the cardiometabolic benefits of exercise and healthy eating occur independently of weight loss,” he said. “Good health is possible at any size.”
