Astrophysicist just owned a climate change troll!
And it didn’t end there. As Business Insider reports, “JK Rowling just high-fived Melbourne astrophysicist [Dr. Katherine J. Mackon] on Twitter after she owned a climate change troll,” sharing the moment with “her nearly 8 million followers.”
See for yourself in her tweet, below:

@AstroKatie Best utterly cool burn of an ignorant jerk EVER. Who knew that was going to be a side benefit of your PhD? Yea, you!

Dr. Mack earned her PhD in astrophysics at Princeton University and her undergraduate degree in physics at CalTech. She’s currently based at the University of Melbourne and holds a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) on the topic: “Dark matter particle physics and the first sources of light in the universe.”
She knows a thing or two about science, climate and dark matter.
