Welcome Space Gal Emily Calandrelli To TechCrunch

We’re super pleased to say that Emily Calandrelli has joined up with TechCrunch to cover space, science and everything STEM related. Emily, known as The Space Gal on Twitter, has an authoritative and entertaining voice in the space arena, something I’ve been wanting more of on TC for a while now.

Emily is also a producer and the host of FOX’s Xploration Outer Space, a nationally syndicated educational TV show where she shows viewers the most exciting projects in the space industry today. She received Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering degrees from West Virginia University and Masters degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics as well as Technology and Policy from MIT.emily_headshot

Emily is a professional speaker and is passionate about exciting students and their families about science and space exploration. 

You may have seen Emily’s articles around as she’s been a Crunch Network contributor for some time, writing pieces like this great series on the global corporate battle to bring Internet to the world, why SpaceX changed its landing location back to a water-borne drone ship and how Blue Origin’s rocket launch and landing differed from SpaceX’s Falcon efforts.

Please welcome her and follow her on Twitter here!
