He is currently the Editor of the Journal of Astronomy & Earth Sciences Education. Dr. Inge Heyer has spent decades developing a unique expertise in astronomy communications across a variety of settings, including college classrooms, K-12 schools, informal educational settings, professional scientific journalism, and science fiction venues.
