Curriculum Vitae

The curriculum vitae comes from the Latin phrase for “the course of my life.” Though I suspect that a true representation of my entire life would be a lot more colorful and non-linear, you can at least get a sense of my professional history and qualifications by perusing my CV. I keep a (mostly) current copy as a pdf on DropBox.

    My name is Sarah Pearson and I’m a 4th year PhD student at Columbia University studying astrophysics.

    I’ve recently started an astronomy YouTube channel (Space with Sarah), where I answer frequently asked space related questions and I’m big fan of your astronomy blog.

    I have a new episode out and, as a reader, I thought it might be a good fit for your audience:
    Here’s the link as an embedded link:

    I’ve included a brief description of the episode below if that’s helpful to you.

    Hope you get a chance to check it out and if you have any questions, let me know.

    Thanks a lot,

    The Earth and our whole solar system is ~4.6 billion years old, but the Universe is a lot older, it’s ~13.8 billion years old! That begs the question: could there be other solar systems out there which are a lot older than our own? Could life have formed a lot earlier than here on Earth? And how intelligent might these alien civilizations be? In this episode, astrophysicist, Sarah, explains how stars need to explode and spread their elements into space before we can form planets like Earth. She also discusses what other solar systems need in order to resemble our own Earth and have conditions for life to start.
