Athena started Astroathens, LLC in 2014 to recreate an experience she had in her first astronomy class - but on a larger scale. Her first professor, Dr. Charles Liu totally changed the perspective of all the students in the class on the universe. Athena was most impressed with how captivated the non-stem major students were , and so it became her mission statement: science for the non-scientist.
Athena has worked on shows currently airing on the Science Channel, YouTube, and soon Curiosity Stream. Speaking on camera about the wonders of the universe is only the start to a lifelong mission of bringing astrophysics to everyone.
Starting Astroathens, LLC has led to opportunities in aerospace such as covering rocket launches, being invited to NASA facilities, Spaceport America, Kourou spaceport, and tons of science events around the world to help spread awareness & continue the outreach & education for astronomy & science. #KeepLearning
Athena was invited to Spaceport America for the Ad Astra press trip where she personally met and interviewed NASA representatives like astronaut Leland Melvin. She also got to try out the astronaut g-force multi-axis trainer, the real Lunar Rover from the movie and meet engineers from Richard Branson's company Virgin Galactic while also seeing their Spaceship Two up-close and personal!
