Christopher Crockett of the EarthSky blog AstroWoW is an astronomer at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. He wants to know if there's life out there besides us and where those creatures might be, so he's decided to help out in the search for planets around other stars. By focusing on trying to locate planets around very young stars, he hopes to contribute to our understanding of how and where planets form. He began AstroWoW as the blog Astronomy Word of the Week before joining EarthSky in 2012. He is also a regular contributor to the 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast. He finds great joy in setting up a telescope on the sidewalks of Flagstaff and accosting unsuspecting passers-by with dazzling views of Jupiter, Saturn, and other celestial wonders. When not probing the depths of the universe, Christopher balances his scientific interests by pursuing a second life as a thespian and swing dancer.
