Meet the first Astronomer-in-Residence at the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve

Catherine Slaughter

Last fall, we told you about the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve Stem Network, which uses a grant from NASA to support stem engagement in the Gem State.

As part of that outreach, Idaho's Central Dark Sky Reserve will host the first astronomer-in-residence, starting this month.

Catherine Slaughter is a proto-astrophysicist who is coming to the reserve next week and she joined Idaho Matters to tell us more about her residency.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
