About

Hi, I’m a science communicator passionate about humanity’s future in space and this is my space on the internet. I write high-quality articles on space exploration and science, and communicate the need for exploring space via podcasts, videos and public speaking as well. Let’s get to know me.

Science Writing

I specialize in writing comprehensive yet accessible articles on space exploration and the sciences. You can find them all in one place on this blog, jatan.space. My articles have been published at various places.

Also published at Open Magazine, TIFR and TeamIndus Moonshot.

I’ve also been mentioned in the media and had my articles featured.

Outreach

I often speak at public events and engage in science outreach. Here are some notable ones.

Look up and wonder, or we die.

Please visit the public talks page to arrange a session for you.

Space Research

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.

Co-developed a framework with veteran scientist Dr. Jim Head and peers for maximizing science output in lunar landing missions.

Part of the TeamIndus group collaborating with Brown University on a science-optimized traverse for the rover in a Moon landing mission.
Paper published in NewSpace.

I also have some research experience in Astrophysics, specifically in analyzing X-rays from cosmic objects.

Satellite Projects

When I’m not writing articles, I’m making podcasts and videos on space exploration or building niche, informative websites.
