Thank you Dad
November 29, 2012
I remember sitting on the couch with my dad as a kid watching astronomy shows, constantly asking questions. My dad taught me the names of the planets and the little he knew about them. He told me about the different rockets and the missions they were used for. He told me anything about space that he could think of. I remember taking his small telescope out to our backyard and having him show me anything, it didn't matter what it was. Space was something we had in common, a passion we shared. If it weren't for my dad, my passion for space wouldn't be the same as it is now. I'm sure I wouldn't be an Astrophysics major, a female in a male dominated field. I owe my love of space to him. Thank you Dad
They are Watching the Skies for You!
Our researchers, worldwide, do absolutely critical work.
Asteroid 2012DA14 was a close one.
It missed us. But there are more out there.
