Nahum Mendez Chazarra

As a geologist, I understand the power of pictures to engage people in a science. I think that is the main reason why I decided to become a scientist when I was a child, because I got captivated by all the beauty present in our Solar System that was being captured, at that moment, by the Voyager probes and Hubble Space Telescope.

I spend some of my spare time writing and speaking about the geology of our Solar System, processing space images and trying to make planetary sciences more accessible to the general public. I also volunteer in HiTranslate Project as Spanish translator.

You can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Youtube.
