"In a new “astromycological” venture launched in conjunction with NASA
<https://paulstamets.com/news/astromycology-funded-by-nasa>, Stamets and
various research teams are studying how fungi can be leveraged to build
extraterrestrial habitats and perhaps someday even terraform planets. This
is not the first time Stamets’s career has intersected with speculative
space science. He also recently received an honor that many researchers
would consider only slightly less hallowed than a Nobel Prize: the
distinction of having a *Star Trek *character named after him.

*Scientific American *spoke with Stamets about the out-of-this-world
implications for the emerging field of astromycology."
