Celebrations ??

Erin is celebrating the release of the first episode of a new video series she has helped work on for NASA!

In her own words:

“7 months ago, I joined an awesome team at NASA that has been following the journey of a team of women researchers for 2 years as they send their science to the space station. I got to jump in and help work on the video series about it called NASA Explorers: Microgravity. This week, the first episode came out, and the rest will air weekly for the next 7 weeks!.”

Episode 1 of NASA Explorers: Microgravity is out in the world! It's been an absolutely amazing experience working on this season with Rachel Barry, Nicole Rose and Erik Lopez. From writing voice over scripts to tagging along on video shoots to planning out all the social media around the series, working on it has been an absolute joy. Episode 1 introduces you to microgravity science aboard the space station. The rest of the season will follow a super cool team of scientists sending their research to space. Check out episode 1 now (link in my bio) and stay tuned for many more weeks of episodes coming your way! And if you wouldn't mind sharing it with the world, that would be amazing!
