Hi, I’m Jatan Mehta, a science writer and public speaker passionate about space exploration and the Moon. Let’s get to know me and my work.
I write high-quality articles on space exploration and science, you can find them all on this blog, jatan.space. My articles have been published on respected global publications.
I often speak at public events to inform and inspire kids, students and the public at large about space exploration. Here are some notable ones.
Look up and wonder, or we die.
If you’d like a session for you or your organization, visit the public talks page.
I was a science officer at TeamIndus, where my work entailed selecting landing sites for their Moon missions, identifying science objectives and converting them to engineering requirements.
I also have some research experience in Astrophysics, specifically with X-ray emitting cosmic objects. My project involved analyzing X-ray emissions from a binary star system using ISRO’s Astrosat data. Astrosat is India’s first space telescope.
When not writing articles, I’m making videos and podcasts on space exploration or building niche, informative websites
Keep me going 🚀
