I don't know, but...

Brandon

November 29, 2012

I don't really know what sparked my passion for space. Maybe it was watching movies like Star Wars or Space Camp in my youth. Maybe it was when I visited Kennedy Space Center, also as a child. One day though, as an adult, I thought to myself that I couldn't imagine going on through life without looking at the planets through a telescope. So I did my research, and purchased a nice 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain portable telescope. The first planet I viewed through it was Saturn and it was one of the most magnificent things I had ever seen in my life. It is still my favorite object to view. That changed everything for me. Since then, I became extremely interested in the field of astronomy, theoretical and nuclear physics, as a(nother) hobby.
