Special Guest: This week we are excited to welcome Chelsea “Foxanne” Gohd, Senior Writer at, to the WSH. Chelsea writes articles and creates, scripts, and hosts videos about science topics ranging from climate change to exoplanet exploration and human spaceflight.

In November 2020, Chelsea became an analog astronaut after having completed an analog Mars mission at HI-SEAS** with six other women. Their mission, Sensoria M2, is only the second ever all-female crew at HI-SEAS. You can watch a short video about their experience here:…

Prior to her work at, Chelsea worked as a freelance science writer, with bylines in publications including Scientific American, Astronomy Magazine, and Discover Magazine.

Additionally, Chelsea wrote an installation for the American Museum of Natural History’s Hall of Meteorites which included extensive text for touchscreen exhibition placards, and both design and text for interactive, in-exhibit games. She also worked as an exhibitions assistant at the AMNH, helping to shape and deliver public lectures the exhibitions “Spiders Alive!” and “The Secret World Inside You.”

Chelsea is also a musician and writes, performs, and records indie-pop music under the pseudonym “Foxanne.” As Foxanne, she released her debut full-length record in 2020, titled “It’s real (I knew it),” named after an iconic scene from the hit sci-fi film “Galaxy Quest.” The album features a number of space-y easter eggs, including audio from the OA-9 rocket launch, a 2018 cargo mission that launched from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, and a song written from the perspective of NASA’s Opportunity rover.

Following this album in 2021, she released “Hello, Mars,” a song featuring the first audio recorded on the surface of Mars, recently captured by NASA’s Perseverance rover.
