The Most Ridiculous

Freiburg undercover 1: The Famous Astrophysicist |

If you were to interview an astrophysicist about ‘', it would be super quick and easy for them to dismiss it as nonsense, right?

Naughty wrong-think trouble maker, , goes undercover in the name of science and meets astronomer, researcher of extraterrestrial life, physics professor, discoverer and artist, Svetlana Berdyugina, to debunk once and for all the ridiculous notion that we don't actually live on a spinning ball rotating at a thousand miles per hour, wobbling, speeding up and slowing down, hurtling around the sun at 66,660 miles per hour, all the while zooming through space at over half a million miles per hour. Ha! Good luck wise guy!

Svetlana Berdyugina

astronomer, researcher of extraterrestrial life, physics professor, discoverer and artist.

Svetlana Berdyugina is an exoplanetary and astrobiology researcher, physics professor, discoverer and artist. Svetlana and her team were the first to see reflected light and a blue color of a planet outside the solar system, a paradigm-exploding discovery in exoplanetary research. While employing quantum effects in various molecules, she pioneered and established several innovative research lines in astrophysics, which led to discoveries of new phenomena. Her breadth, vision and fearless attitude toward research set her on the path to search for signs of life on other planets while investigating colorful bacteria and plants of Hawai‘i.

Among her myriad accomplishments, Svetlana is the first and only female physics professor at Freiburg University—which was founded in 1457—and the first female astrophysicist offered a professor chair in Germany. She is also the co-founder of the Colossus telescope, the world's largest telescope capable of detecting extraterrestrial life and civilizations, and a member of the Astrobiology Institute Team at the University of Hawai‘i.

Svetlana's creative nature takes over the right side of her brain. She continuously expands her terrestrial and extraterrestrial vision through her colorful paintings and imagines that this fusion of art and science will lead her to find that needle in the haystack—life in the universe.
