I have enjoyed every single On Being radio show that I’ve listnened to, but their recent interview with guest Natalie Batalha might have been my favorite thus far. Batalha is an astronomer who studies exoplanets and writes poetry on the side – not a bad combination. My particular interest in this interview stems from my background in physics, which I studied as an undergraduate and also in one year of graduate school before I decided to pursue a career in teaching rather than research. So I was happy and excited for many of the ideas that I had studied to come flooding back from my memory as Batalha spoke so eloquently on the ecstasy of scientific discovery and our place in the universe. Illustrating her ideas was a pure joy. Here are my sketchnotes from the show:
