Ariel Waldman loves space, and once wanted to work for NASA. Badly. So badly, in fact, that NASA could sense it when they read her letter to them - stating that she wanted to be involved in any way. Though she got to learn about dark matter and black holes, and though she got to send objects into space, she realized she didn't need NASA for this job.

So, she took off to start SpaceHack.org, a site dedicated to getting "regular" people involved in space exploration via disruptive citizen science projects that almost anyone has access to. In this episode we explore the ways that science fiction has (and can continue to) shape the future, and how citizen science is allowing people from around the world to help break ground in science, and get credit for it.
