As part of our “Seeker Series,” we recently traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii to film Michelle Collins, “The Running Astronomer.” A Hubble Fellow at Yale University, Michelle spends her days studying the origins of the cosmos. Running is big part of her daily routine; Michelle not only loves the sport, but also utilizes the time while running to come at her work from a different perspective, think more clearly and maybe even have an “aha” moment or two.
