A lifetime passion for Space

joseph G. Filosa

November 28, 2012

It must have been Apollo 11. Although I was extremely young at the time, I remember all the excitement around me over the first lunar landing. Over the years I developed a love for space exploration and Astronomy. I was introudced to Astronomy magazine by my future (at that time) brother in Law, and through the course of my youth began stargazing on a regular basis. When I went to college I majored in geology with a heavy empthasis in astrogeology. Since I still needed "science" credits I also took a year of astronomy. My passion for astronomy and space exploration remains as great now as it did when I was a youth,and I now share that passion with my children.
