Professor Billy Hix is the Associate Professor of Education at Motlow State Community College and a Teacher Liaison for the Space Foundation. Billy frequently visits local schools to perform outreach and to encourage STEM education in general, with a focus on science and astronomy, and to assist teachers to engage their students in science. Yes, the man gets around! Billy has a passion for education and astronomy, and is an absolute pleasure to listen to as he shares his knowledge about the universe through the numerous talks and star parties he coordinates every year for the Space Foundation.
Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons are a select group of educators who share a passion for space and were selected for the program for their integration of space themes into the classroom. This will be a wonderful discussion, and one to encourage backyard stargazers to get involved in STEM programs and astronomy outreach.
Hosted By: Harold Muhammad
Harold, an eclectic and voracious reader, began his venture in the world of the written word as a child of 2 years. Scraps of paper, candy wrappers, dictionary's right through the entire encyclopedia Britannica. Yet Harold was driven to books of the sciences. Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, he met them all with great wonder and fascination. He delved into each discipline as if his very life depended upon understanding its depth.
It was not until the words of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad that the essence and understanding of the sciences began to have true purpose and meaning. He said, "all there is to know is written in a book, read".
Harold began his collegiate pursuit at Hampton Institute; he then forayed to Fairleigh Dickenson University. At FDU the practice of the Social Sciences, public activism, and public speaking became a trusted part of mental fabric.
Harold is the husband to Celestine Muhammad, and the father of 10 extraordinary children, and 8 grandchildren. Harold has the benefit of having the most exceptional and wondrous teachers to whom he owes all that he has learned, will learn and knows to this very day, The Most Hon. Elijah Muhammad, the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan, his Father Alfred Eatman, and his Grandfather the Late Captain, Harold D. Hook.
Millions tuned in to see the first images beamed back to Earth the night that NASA's Curiosity landed on Mars. We live-streamed with baited breath as Felix Baumgartner set world records with his freefall from the edge of space, and marveled at the news of a successful 36-hour face transplant. From astronomy to medicine and every discipline in between, science gets us talking in record numbers. Whether you know more about Big Bang Theory the TV show than you do the cosmological model, you'll find thousands of answers on BlogTalkRadio from scientists, historians, authors, TV stars and more about popular topics like biopharmaceuticals, hydroponics, geology, solar energy, climate change, forensics, creationism vs. evolution, quantum physics, stem cell research, even UFO and Bigfoot sightings. You'll also find a full range of mental-health discussions on seasonal affective disorder, behavioral therapy, depression, codependency, schizophrenia, parapsychology and everything else that may confound, and astound, us.
