Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Michelle Nichols Being an avid NASA and space enthusiast all my life, the opportunity to be a Solar System Ambassador was too good to pass up! I am currently the Lead Educator for Informal Programs at the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum in Chicago, IL, where my constant contact with the general public leads right into the goals of the Solar System Ambassador program.

My husband and I live in the western suburbs of Chicago, we have two cats, Rufus and Chaka, and we love to go to concerts in the Chicago area. My hobbies include reading, cooking, and watching football and cooking shows whenever possible.
