Alexa Erdogan is a scientist fascinated with the intersections between biology and outer space. Her background in science communication and illustration has left her with a passion for breaking down complex ideas into simple, digestible parts that can be easily visualized. She’s also an avid postcard sender herself, although she hasn’t sent any from these locations…yet.
Emily Olsen is an arts administrator and volunteer science communicator. She loves snail mail (as well any intergalactic equivalents) and started sending more postcards to friends during the pandemic. Emily is enthusiastic about the history and future of space exploration and loves to share that excitement with others. She lives and works in New York City.
Skyla Lilly is a teacher and artist based in New York City. They work as a hand lettering artist and love designing cards and sending mail. They also see this project of combining science and art as a way to emulate a major role model of theirs—Ms. Frizzle.
