Kimberly Kowal Arcand ’97

The sky belongs to everyone, says Kim. She should know. As media coordinator for NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, she’s been working in science outreach for the last 15 years at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Mass. Now Kim and her colleague Megan Watzke have penned a guidebook that demystifies supernovas and black holes, makes the exploration of our solar system accessible, and dazzles us with photos of must-see stops along the way. Your Ticket to the Universe: A Guide to Exploring the Cosmos, published by Smithsonian Books, is just the ticket for the ride of your life.
