Library Launch to the Cosmos

Steve Frey

December 3, 2012

In 1956, when I was five years old, my wonderful mother took me to the library to introduce me to the world of reading and books. There, we found a small book on stars. It had only hand-drawn, black-ink renderings of constellations and a basic discussion on stars, but it was enough to mesmerize me. I can still visualize that book! From that day onward, fascination with stars and the universe has energized my every day.
