Our make-up artist Rachel turned up each day laden with special effects make-up and hair equipment and did an amazing job transforming our main character from a mild-mannered archaeologist into a mud-covered, scratched-up cave-woman (on location in a wet forest too!).
Professor Rachel Webster is a lecturer and lead research academic at The University of Melbourne, and was kind enough to let us film in her office for the afternoon, which gave brilliant authenticity to our leading male character, astrophysicist, Dr Orrin James.

Review: Exoplanets & Life in Space - Science Communication Panel Event - The Royal Society of Victoria

Rachel Webster with David Zerman Prof Rachel Webster with RSV President David Zerman So, when Rachel Webster was asked at the start of this event, what turned her onto science, it was satisfying to hear her say she had two clear recollections. The first was as at age eight. Something triggered in her a desire to be a scientist, so she asked her mother what she needed to do and then she never strayed from that path - to high school maths, physics and chemistry and onto University. Once at University, it was a Summer School outreach program which led her to Astronomy. This will hearten colleagues who have spent many hours in very unglamorous camping spots eating yet more bad sausages and white bread as they share their enthusiasm for their subject with impressionable newcomers. That enthusiasm is infectious and it was evident in Rachel's four very keen, bright colleagues who joined her at this event to share knowledge of space exploration. Now, all that astronomy stuff is great, but I am even more curious about what else was going in the life of eight-year-old Rachel Webster which made her become so determined that science was for her. I look forward to reading that in her memoirs if she ever gets a break from the exciting world of astrophysics to write them!
