TMO Background Mode: Interview With Astrophysicist Dr. Ethan Siegel

| Background Mode Podcast

Dr. Ethan Siegel has a Ph.D. in astrophysics, is an educator at Lewis and Clark College, and is a prolific writer about all things astronomy and cosmology. In college he had a triple major, one of which was astrophysics, but he still wasn't sure what he wanted to do in his career. It was only later when he was teaching physics in highschool that he awakened to his passion for learning astrophysics. Carl Sagan's Cosmos series on TV also had a major impact on him, and all that led eventually to a Ph.D. in astrophysics. Then, we talked about laser astronomy with adaptive optics, gravitational waves, quantum entanglement and possible hidden mysteries of quantum mechanics. Those who love—or are considering a career in—astrophysics will want to hear this story about Ethan's career.
