Black Oxygen: Astrophysicist Dr. Eric Wilcots


In this episode of Black Oxygen, Dr. Eric Wilcots, a Black astronomer and Dean of UW-Madison’s College of Letters and Sciences says, “2020 taught us some remarkably important things and if we are wise we will listen to them.” We cover so much in our conversation, including the difference between astronomy and astrology, self-love, the concept and meaning of time (both geologic and astronomical). Regarding time, Dr. Wilcots reminds us that, “yes, stuff takes time, but that doesn’t mean that every minute isn’t important.”
