Who Hired the Astrophysicist? Leadership Lessons from The Road Less Traveled
Dr. Michelle Larson, President and CEO of Adler Planetarium

An accomplished astrophysicist with a passion for science education, Dr. Michelle Larson is the Adler’s ninth leader.

As president of America’s first planetarium, Dr. Larson oversees a twenty-first century space science center that includes the institution’s landmark museum complex, exhibition galleries, and three theaters; a robust research enterprise; one of the world’s leading collections documenting the history of science; and an award-winning education and outreach program.

Dr. Larson’s professional passion is enabling engagement and communication between scientists and the public. She grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Physics from Montana State University, and did her doctoral work in neutron star astrophysics. It was during this time that she discovered astronomy as a vehicle to engage people in science.

“Countless galaxies, unfathomable distances, exploding stars, diamond planets, black holes, there’s no way around it. Space is mind-blowingly, fantastically awesome.

In short, you could say…Space is Freaking Awesome.”
