I had the pleasure of witnessing the great work of Majken and Astronomicca in the context of SDU and the Danish Astronomical Society. Hence it was without hesitation that I entered a collabotion with Astronomicca acting as a highly skilled and motivated consultant and professional partner for performing science communication to the public on behalf of University Library of Southern.

I’ve known Majken since 2008, when we both participated in a particle physics graduate school event at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. Since then I have been constantly impressed by her enthusiasm and excitement for science, and her ability to convey this mood to the people around her. She has a solid understanding of physics and astronomy, and is equipped with excellent communication skills. She has the exceptional talent of making topics in contemporary physics approachable to the non-specialist audience, without compromising the scientific content of the message.

Majken has all the most important ingredients, that make a good science communicator: a solid scientific background combined with an excellent ability to adapt her communication to an audience. All of this is wrapped in a personality, which radiates commitment, focus and a fundamental enthusiasm for science.

Majken har alle de vigtigste ingredienser, der skaber en god videnskabsformidler: en solid faglig ballast kombineret med en fremragende evne til at tilpasse sin formidling til publikum. Alt dette pakket ind i en personlighed, der udstråler engagement, fokus og en helt grundlæggende begejstring for videnskab.

Science can make the unthinkable thinkable, the invisible visible and the difficult accessible. Outreach is the key. Majken masters this, even for children. She creates interest and opens for future participation in natural science’s quest for questions and answers to understand our Universe.

Videnskaben kan gøre det ubegribelige begribeligt, det usynlige synligt og det svære tilgængeligt. Det handler først og fremmest om formidling. Majken formår disse ting og det endda i børnehøjde. Hun skaber en interesse i, og åbner muligheden for, fremtidig deltagelse i den naturvidenskabelig verdens afsøgning af spørgsmål og svar i forståelse af vores univers.
