“The problem isn’t Jewishness or Jews. The problem is when Jews start to act like and live as and be a part of the power of whiteness. And therefore get the power to move the levers of white supremacy in their favor.”

I am also lead axion wrangler and social media team member for the NASA STROBE-X Probe Concept Study. My driving impulse: understand the origin of spacetime and the particles that populate it. Using ideas from both physics and astronomy, I respond to deep questions about how everything got to the be the way it is. The Disordered Cosmos, my popular science book which draws from my experience and knowledge as a Black American theoretical physicist, is forthcoming from Nation Books. (My name is pronounced phonetically like “Chahnda Prescod-Winestine.”)
