Dr. Paul M. Sutter, astrophysicist and science educator – and now AUTHOR – is no stranger to the regular viewers of the WSH – but in case you missed it, and for anyone new to the WSH, Paul earned his Bachelor of Science in Physics from California Polytechnic State University in 2005 and his PhD in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011. By day, Paul is a Cosmological Researcher & Community Outreach Coordinator with the Department of Astronomy at Ohio State University.

But Paul is probably best known and loved by everyone here at the WSH as one of our four co-hosts, his weekly show Space Radio, and of course, let’s not forget his podcast Ask a Spaceman!

This week, we turn the tables on Paul (at least briefly!) as he joins us as our special guest to discuss his first book Your Place in the Universe.

You can learn more about Paul and his research by visiting his website, http://www.pmsutter.com.
