A little bit about me and my goals
Hi Everyone, my name is Dr. Michaela Musilova and I’m an astrobiologist. That means that I’m searching for life in space. I’m also looking at what the limits of life are on Earth, in order to better understand what other lifeforms we could find elsewhere in the Universe.
My research has taken me from working at NASA and various observatories worldwide all the way to leading expeditions in extreme environments, such as beyond the Arctic Circle and on the summits of tall mountains. I have also been the Commander of over 30 simulated space missions to the Moon and Mars.
A big passion of mine is to teach and to share my experiences with audiences around the world through lectures, outreach activities and interviews with the media. I greatly enjoy working with people from different cultures and countries worldwide.
My mission is to make STEAM subjects, space and research more accessible to the public through my numerous projects. I also hope to empower women and underrepresented people to pursue their dreams, despite obstacles in their way. It’s important to follow your heart and do what you believe is right.
Please have a look at the rest of my website for more information about me.
