Summary

Professor Hausel's public speaking profession began while a student at the University of Utah. Having a great interest in geology & astronomy, he applied for a position as a gallery attendent at the Hansen Planetarium in Salt Lake City. This position required lecturing to a variety of groups about geology and astronomy through a large exhibit hall. After being promoted to Astronomy Lecturer at the Planetarium, Hausel typically presented 50 to 100 lectures a year about various aspects of astronomy.  He left this position to research lunar samples from the Apollo program in graduate school. After graduating from the U of U with BS and MS degrees in geology, he continued his education at the University of New Mexico where he was hired as a teaching assistant and taught classes in basic mineralogy and also in igneous petrology (origins and textures of volcanic and plutonic rocks).

 

After leaving the New Mexico, he continued research as a geologist at the Wyoming Geological Survey on the University of Wyoming Campus where he was in demand as a public speaker along with his geological research and geological mapping projects. A relatively detailed log of his lectures at the University of Wyoming were the result of working for one director who can best be described as a pencil pusher and required that the Survey keep a long of all lectures by its staff that were also published in periodic pamphlet of activities of the agency known as Geonotes.
