    I always wanted to be an astronomer.

    I would go to the library and read books on astronomy and cosmology. However, I realized that math prevented me from achieving my dream. So I went with my next option: design and illustration. So one day, while I was at work, I saw a news article about the sun's solar flares and...

    Space time, gravity and exoplanets have always

    fascinated me so I hope to study and research them deeper after I've graduated the field.

    There's this awe I feel

    when I think about the stars, but just imagine that there could be someone or something like you, and that you are the universe, in the form of a human. And if you don't find that fascinating, then that's just peanuts in spas.

    New Way To Visualize How Earth Moves Around The Sun

    earth does not just turn around the sun... it spirals around the sun while the sun spirals through the galaxy. thinking that the earth simply turns around the sun, surprisingly, is equivalent to thinking the earth is flat!

    I've always had a fascination with space, and how it works. When I was about 7, I got a telescope for Christmas, is was really cheap but it still kinda worked. I would spend hours just sitting outside, looking at the stars. And when I'd hear about meteor showers I'd stay...

    Has anyone noticed Aldebaran in the Taurus

    constellation spazzing out lately? Even in a hazy sky, it has been flashing really bright and red. (yes, i know its a red giant, and the 14th brightest star in the sky) It just seems unusually flashy. Check it out tonight.
