On episode 253 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we are joined by astrophysicist, Beatriz Villarroel. A curiosity in the cosmos at a young age sparked a lifetime of looking up at the stars for Villarroel. This would lead her to Postdoctoral research (Nordic Fellow) at Stockholm University, Sweden, and as an affiliated researcher with Instituto de Astrof ́ısica de Canarias in Tenerife, Spain. She also serves as the Principal Investigator of the “Vanishing & Appearing Sources during a Century of Observations (VASCO) Project. After recently being awarded the 2021 L’Oréal-Unesco Prize For Women in Science, she continues her search for answers to vanishing stars and other luminous objects, which naturally leads to a bigger search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Today, she speaks with Chrissy and Ryan about these incredible projects, her thoughts on UFOs and the possibility of ET life, and the importance of Citizen Science as we move in to a new era of exploration, somewhere in the skies.
