Our guest for this segment is theoretical astrophysicist Dr. Katie Mack, ( @AstroKatie / http://www.astrokatie.com/ ). Now this doesn't mean that she's theoretically an astrophysicist. No. She's an astrophysicist who works with theories about astrophysics. She studies dark matter, black holes, cosmic strings and the formation of the first stars & galaxies. Tonight she talks with Pamela about dark matter and how outreach can be a literal gold mine for science!
