The Stellar DeepLab

The Stellar DeepLab (SDL) is a multimedia production studio within STARS. The objective of the SDL is to inspire individuals to explore their interests in space science, while simultaneously providing opportunities for students and community members to expand their horizons by contributing their own knowledge and content. For many individuals who are drawn to pursue pathways in space exploration and STEM, media often serves as the gateway.

Whether through movies, books, or other forms of media, it is art that ignites the initial spark of inspiration; SDL embodies that fusion of science and art. This project is led primarily by Richard Camuccio who works as a PhD Physics student, multi-messenger astronomy researcher, and Assistant Director of the Cristina Torres Memorial Observatory at UTRGV, and serves as a Board Member and Chief Scientist for STARS.



Science Magazine

FarFarOut! is a scientific magazine exploring various topics in space science and astronomy. The magazine includes articles by contributors ranging from high school students to accomplished astrophysics researchers, artwork, “Cosmic Coordinates” (a map of the current night sky and list of upcoming astronomical events), and a “Space Rangers” section with activities for young explorers. There are currently 9 issues across 3 volumes available in digital PDF form; our future goals include to print and distribute the science magazine throughout the community.

Receding Horizons


A podcast that explores topics in space science and develops insight into the world of space exploration and STEM through field experts. There are currently four episodes available with future plans to enhance the podcast with multiple categories including accessible yet comprehensive explanations about astronomical phenomena called “Astro Bites”.
