• PaleBlue.blog, now international (and soon interplanetary?)

    Please join me in welcoming PaleBlue.blog’s newest author, Dimitra Atri. Dr. Atri is currently a India Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) Visiting Fellow at the Department of High Energy Physics in the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai, India. He studies the interaction of high-energy particles of astrophysical origin with the terrestrial atmosphere and its biota. He is interested in exploring the interface between the physical and biological worlds, extraterrestrial intelligence research, science education and public outreach projects.

    That’s what’s going on the “authors” page. My more personal take/assessment is that Dimitra is one of the world’s preeminent thinkers when it comes to finding reasonable ways for extraterrestrial events to have had impacts on the history of life on Earth.
