Space Nerd Co-Hosts

Benjamin Salles

Benjamin Salles is the creator and curator of the Facebook SciComm page Science Actually, for which he makes daily science memes, monthly top ten lists, and uses it as a platform to speak with other science enthusiasts. Benjamin also loves 'counting things that don't need counting', and one of his favorite hobbies is making data visualizations about, well, anything - he's made a map of the Solar System that looks like the famous London Underground map which has been published and presented in conferences around the world, created a customizable Perseverance Mars Rover parachute that you can print at home, counted every single drink James Bond had in every film and learned that a martini is not his favorite, and he's even built an interactive chart of every single time he's done the dishes to perfection in an event he's called a Dish Singularity. On his bookshelf are The Physics of Baseball, The Physics of Superheroes, and Carl Sagan's Cosmos.

Benjamin's a husband, father of three, the glowing center of his dog's universe, sub-par handyman, reluctant little league coach, lover of Lego (just the space sets), and a militant believer that a hot dog is not a sandwich and that Pluto is a planet.
