About Us:
Our company is creating a video game in order to increase the public's awareness of current/hypothesized space research. We hope to lore them in with an entertaining video game that provides bits and peaces of science along the way. However, the real education factor we hope to introduce will come through our forums in a section we are calling 'Science behind the Sci-fi'. Here, we want to have a 4-member panel that discusses modern day science research in these 'science-fiction' areas that we use to make our game (terraforming, etc).

The problem is, our 5 member team primarily consists of game developers, so our space-industry contacts are very limited. Thus, we were hoping to reach out here, in hopes a few of you could reach out to the community for us / possibly be interested in the job yourself?

Any help in reaching out to the space community would be greatly appreciated!


Position Description:
This will be an opportunity for scientists to maintain a personal blog on a forum with an audience of not only scientists, but also the general public (get your ideas exposure)! Though we will require blog topics to be approved (to prevent overlap with other panelists), we don't plan to moderate, or restrict, your posts - in fact, we are looking for panelists that have their own voice (whether it be argumentative or calm and friendly). The goal is to present topics that will not only expose our community to different aspects of science, but also to stimulate debate and discussion about the topic.

(Though we can't promise that you'll be the next Neil Degrasse Tyson or Bill Nye - this is basically what we are shooting for with our 4-member panel, except you'll build your name with the public through video games & forums rather than through TV - which allows you to be much more interactive & appeal to a new demographic).

In particular, we are looking for panelists with experience in one of the following fields:
  • Astronomy
  • Astrobiology
  • Astrophysics
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Geology
  • Paleobotany
  • Any other fields related to space sciences may be considered

Panelist Requirements:
  • Provide one topic post per month (no word count requirements, but anticipate an average of 300-500 words)
  • Submit blog topics for approval to prevent overlap
  • Occassionally participate in panelist discussions -
  • University professors will be given priority, but we are also interested in hearing from graduate students and space industry professionals

Interested parties may leave a reply to this topic post, or contact us via the email on our website contact page.

Hello, I am interested in helping the panel. I have a BS of Computer Science from Bowling Green State University and a BS in Botany and Plant Pathology from Oregon State University. At Bowling Green I took two video game design classes and I am very interested in both science fiction and game design.
